Recommendations/observations on corporal punishment in the Human Rights Committee's concluding observations to states examined in session 66 (12-30 July 1999)


(27 July 1999, CCPR/C/79/Add.108, Concluding observations on initial report, para. 15)

"The Committee is concerned at reports that children are detained in juvenile detention facilities for considerable periods without charge, and without access to a lawyer or to court. It is particularly concerned that these children are subjected to beatings and to ill-treatment.

The State party should ensure strict observance of articles 7, 9 and 10 and should take appropriate measures to ensure protection of children in accordance with article 24 of the Covenant."


(29 July 1999, CCPR/C/79/Add.110, Concluding observations on fourth report, para. 25)

"The Committee welcomes the abolition by law of corporal punishment in schools; it is concerned, however, that this change in the law is not fully being implemented (arts. 7 and 24)."
