We have enough laws protecting minors in conflict with the law. Sadly, it seems Camp Crame is not doing enough to enforce these protective measures down to the station level, Legarda lamented. Legarda was reacting to an Amnesty International human rights report accusing Philippine authorities of widespread maltreatment of minors in conflict with the law. The senator said Camp Crame should activate more children and womens desks in police stations nationwide. She also said the desks should be totally reoriented to properly deal with minors in conflict with the law. At present, the desks receive and act on complaints filed by children and women, mainly involving cases of sexual or domestic abuse. Instead of dealing solely with children and women who have become victims of crimes, Legarda said the desks should be expanded and also assigned to take custody to all females and minors brought to police stations as suspects.
