The Human Rights Commission of Sierra Leone (HRCSL) on Thursday 6th February, 2020 discussed youth issues with the Ministry of Youth Affairs and the National Youth Commission (NaYCom) at their respective offices. The visit according to the Vice Chairperson of HRCSL was to identify ways of possible collaboration and partnership with the two institutions. "As the commission's mandate is to protect and promote human rights for all in Sierra Leone, it is important for collaboration with the Youths ministry as they cater for the people that make up the greater number of the total population of the country" the Vice Chairperson stated. Commissioner Victor I. Lansana stated that HRCSL was concerned about the increase in crimes and violence among the youth leading them to be in conflict with the law. He revealed that during the Commission's monitoring of detention places, it was found out that majority of the inmates were youths awaiting trial.
