Title: Wenn sich die Militärjunta um das Wohl der Kinder kümmert
Date of publication: April 2004
Description/subject: "Myanmar gehört zu den Entwicklungsländern, die sich am meisten um das Wohlergehen der Kinder kümmern.“ Das Zitat stammt aus dem zweiten Bericht über die Situation der Kinder, welcher die burmesischen Behörden im kommenden Mai dem UN-Komitee über die Rechte des Kindes (CRC)vorlegen werden. Ganz offensichtlich scheuen sich die burmesischen Militärmachthaber, die das Land in Myanmar umgetauft haben, nicht vor dicken Lügen auf dem internationalen Parkett. Denn: Die Lage der Kinder und Jugendlichen in Burma ist katastrophal, meinten einhellig die Fachleute aus Kinderschutz- und Menschenrechtsorganisationen, die anfangs Februar 2004 in Genf darüber berieten, wie der zunehmenden Ausbeutung von Kindern in Burma ein Riegel geschoben werden kann.
