NAAN welcomes a challenge on lack of support for 17 year olds in police custody. The charity Just for Kids Law, with whom NAAN has been working on this issue, has been granted permission to bring a judicial review of police practices arguing that all detainees under the age of 18 should be treated as children in line with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Further details can be found here. A NAAN Press release can also be downloaded here.
