Local Magistrate Gloria Augustus advocates for reform of the juvenile justice system in Dominica, to give Magistrates more options to handle child justice matters, including rehabilitation
Magistrate Gloria Augustus says magistrates need more options to deal with juveniles. She says there are very few things which can be done for youth in conflict with the law, hence the reason why system reform is required. Her comments came at the start of a training Thursday for police officers of the Southern District on the Child Justice bill, expected to be taken to parliament soon.
Meanwhile, Augustus says child justice reform is a more humane way to go, andis more developmentally appropriate for young people.
