7. In 2003, … the Government had already begun with the demobilization of child soldiers, initiating a plan to that effect in conjunction with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the World Bank. The objectives of the plan are to … raise popular awareness of the need to prevent the recruitment of children.
91. Since the preparation of the initial report, national legislation has evolved with regard to voluntary enlistment or recruitment in the government armed forces, the minimum age having been raised from 16 years to 18.
93. Above and beyond this legal provision of principle, as mentioned earlier, 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.

- Child soldiers recruited by the government army
- Police officers

303. Objectives of the programme:
- Demobilize 90 per cent of all child soldiers (estimated at 3,000) in military formations of the government army and in the targeted rebel factions over a period of 12 months
- Ensure that mechanisms are in place and operational within 18 months to prevent all parties to the conflict from recruiting children
304. The programme has attained its objectives because more than 3,000 children have been demobilized …
305. The Government has devised a plan for the demobilization … of child soldiers with the financial support of the World Bank … The … objective is to prevent recruitment.
