  • [01] Juvenile delinquency on the rise in Cyprus, says Commissioner

    Juvenile delinquency is rising, said Leda Koursoumba, Commissioner for Children's Rights in Cyprus, noting that there should be juvenile courts to handle such cases.

    She also said that the state should address the reasons that led children to such behaviour. Addressing the European Network of Ombudspersons for Children (ENOC) 16th annual conference, taking place today and tomorrow, she said that the conference will examine issues which the 42 European independent children's rights institutions have very high on their respective national agendas, in the framework of the increasing number of international and regional human rights instruments promoting a child-friendly justice system.
