“War crimes” means crimes which are committed as part of a plan or policy or as part of a large-scale commission of such crimes, in particular:
2. … [S]erious violations of the laws and customs applicable in international armed conflict, within the established framework of international law, namely, any of the following acts:

In 2008, in its second periodic report to the Committee on the Rights of the Child, Burundi stated:
39. Protocol II [to the 2000 Arusha Peace and Reconciliation Agreement for Burundi], chapter I, article 3, … prohibits the use of children in an armed conflict …
92. Burundian legislation now protects minors against participation in armed hostilities, because the Constitution provides that no child may be used directly in an armed conflict and that the protection of children must be ensured in periods of armed conflict (art. 45).
93. Above and beyond this legal provision of principle, … in 2003 the Government adopted specific measures to demobilize child soldiers recruited by the government army or by the former armed political movements which had signed the ceasefire agreements.
