Human rights violations
2004:The number of unaccompanied minors is increasing and the new legislation remains a challenge.

Unaccompanied minors are deprived of their liberty and held in detention together with adults.

Unaccompanied children may be returned from the airport to their countries of origin without any judicial intervention or case assessment.

There are no clear instructions to regulate the access of unaccompanied children to basic services.

Some unaccompanied minors may be excluded from protection, since age determination is not accurate enough to avoid errors.
