我们在此正式向阁下投诉有关新加坡政府违反了《儿童权利公约》约定的第40条款侵犯青少年的权利。
依据40条款B的约定:

(B)所有被指称或指控触犯列法的儿童至少应得到下列保证:
(一) 在依法判定有罪之前应视为无罪;
(二) 迅速直接地被告知其被控罪名,适当时应通过其父母或法定监护人告知,并获得准备和提出辩护所需的法律或其他适当协助;

一名14岁的新加坡青少年林俊辉在2016年1月26日在被警方从学校带走到警察局进行审问有关涉嫌一宗性骚扰案件后以跳楼自杀身亡结束自己的生命。这是因为在没有任何成年人的陪同下警方的审讯程序造成的。

目前新加坡的警方审问程序特别指定,当警方到学校带走任何学生到警察局进行审问或者他们在警察局进行审问时,他们是不准有成年人陪同的。

在目前的法律规定下,在警方进行审问青少年和成年人时是不允许获得任何的法律支援的。

我们仅此呼吁:

国际特赦组织关注警方在任何情况下进行审问时,涉及青少年和成年人的合法权利问题。因为我们在审问过程中所说的一切将成为今后在法院被指控的证据。

在警方进行审问过程中也是在没有安装视频录像下进行审问的。这也是侵犯基本人权的。

我们当中很多人在没有法律的援助下被威胁签署在警方审问过程所录下的口供。

我们正在尽快的组织一个保护青少年基本权利的集会。在我们取得有关当局的批准后将会告知有关的确定日期。

我们仅此期盼您对此事件的回应。

仅此致以敬意和热诚祝愿

 

吴家和 敬致

International Amnesty (via email dated 8 March)

We are filing a official complaint to Amnesty International for the Singapore government’s violation of minors’ rights according to UN Article 40 on The Convention of the Rights of the Child:-

2B II states that “To be informed promptly and directly of the charges against him or her, and, if appropriate, through his or her parents or legal guardians and to have legal or other appropriate assistance in the preparation and presentation of his or her defence”.

A Singaporean 14-year-old child Benjamin Lim took his own life on 26th Jan 2016 after he was hauled from his secondary school to the police station for interrogation on a molestation charge unaccompanied by anyone due to our state police protocol.

Current police protocol specifies that there should not be any Adult Accompaniment when the minor is being picked up by the police from the school to the police station for interrogation nor when he is undergoing interrogation at the police station.

Current police protocol also disallows any legal access both for minors and adults during ongoing police interrogation.

We hope that Amnesty International will look into the legal rights of minors and adults here while under going police interrogation as anything we say during the investigation will be held against us in the court of law.
The failure of the provision of CCTV coverage during police interrogation is also in violation of basic human rights.

Many of us are later coerced to sign on the police interrogation sheet without any legal assistance.

We are organising a protest against minors’ rights as soon as we get the green light from the authorities and will revert on the date.

Awaiting your response on this matter.

Thanks & Warmest Regards,

Gilbert Goh
