Juvenile justice

Members of child rights groups urge senators to junk a bill seeking to lower the minimum age of criminal responsibility during a protest in front of the Philippine Senate on Monday. The groups say proper implementation of the Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act, which was signed into law on April 28, 2008, is enough deterrent against juvenile delinquency.
