Are you in favor of the proposal of lawmakers to lower the minimum age of criminal responsibility (MACR) from 15 to nine years?


Yes, the youth should be responsible for their actions and words as early as possible, and not to unduly pamper them with impunity from criminal responsibility upon reaching the age of nine. It will also serve as a deterrent to the use of youth in the commission of crimes.

No, it violates child rights. Punishing children in conflict with the law (CICL) deprives them of the chance to rebuild their lives and improve their character.

I am undecided.
