Practice Relating to Rule 135. Children
Section A. Special protection
The Report on the Practice of Indonesia, with reference to the Military Manual (1982), states that children under 15 years of age, orphaned or separated from their families as a result of conflict, shall be protected and given access to health care and food.
In 1992, in its initial report to the Committee on the Rights of the Child, Indonesia reported that according to its national legislation, “in any circumstances … children should be protected first”.
