"The Committee expresses concern that corporal punishment continues to be practiced as a means of discipline, particularly in the home, and that violence against children is increasing, particularly in urban areas (art.10).

The Committee recommends that the State party proceed swiftly with the adoption of legislation prohibiting the use of corporal punishment in all settings, and take effective measures to raise awareness among the public against the use of violence against children, including corporal punishment."
