Child Detention Centres in every District

Nov 1, 2010 5:14:40 AM - itnnews.lk

A child detention centre will be setup in every district in the country.

The Child Protection Department said that surveys are underway with regard to setting up the centres. In the first phase, detention centres will be introduced in Ratnapura, Trincomalee, Anuradhapura and Jaffna Districts.

Houses selected amongst the Voluntary Children’s Homes will also be utilized for this purpose. These centres will be used to temporarily provide shelter for children who are facing judicial proceedings.
