Amnesty International has received reports from the Canton of Geneva indicating that police officers are unaware of the provisions of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and have violated provisions falling under Articles 2 and 37 of the Convention, as well as Genevas cantonal legislation with regard to the treatment of children in police custody. The two cases described in this compilation of AI documents - the cases of Visar, a 14-year-old Kosovan refugee and of Didier, a 17-year-old Angolan - illustrate AIs concerns.
