Sri Lanka Report for The Committee on the Rights of the Child 1995 - OMCT/SOS - TORTURE

This Alternative Report is submitted by the Organisation Mondiale Contre la Torture and refers to the government report, which states (in paragraph 155) that the laws relating to children in conflict with the law are «in keeping» with the articles of the convention. OMCT/SOS-Torture calls to raise the age of criminal responsibility in Sri Lanka, given that the minimum age of criminal responsibility established by Sri Lankan legislation is unacceptably low.
