I'm catching up on some of the recorded sessions & will start a thread on the 'Impact of the UN Committee’s statement in 2019 in relation to the minimum age of criminal responsibility', one of #RANZCP2022's recorded sessions, presented by Invited speaker Dr Enys Delmage
Dr Delmage is a consultant in adolescent forensic psychiatry and has worked in an adolescent forensic inpatient unit in Porirua, New Zealand, since November 2017. He has an interest in the law as it relates to #RANZCP2022
Minimum age of criminal responsibility is defined as the age below which is deemed incapable of having committed a criminal offence. Below this age, children are 'doli incapax' - incapable of knowing that what they were doing was wrong- Dr Delmage #RANZCP2022

Some of the statistics Cheryl Axleby has put forward in her talk tonight are stark: "60% of children who are incarcerated in that age bracket - 10-14 years of age - are First Nations children."
