The UNICRI programme promoted the rehabilitation, refurbishment and opening of the first Criminal Prevention Section of the Tribunal for Minors of Mozambique in February 2009 to enable the Government to have an ad hoc section for criminal cases. Moreover, UNICRI in May 2009 opened the first pre-trial Observation Centre and the first post-trial Juvenile Rehabilitation Centre. The rehabilitation of these structures represented an important step in order to provide an accurate treatment to minors at risk and/or in conflict with the law. The Tribunal for Minors is responsible for dealing with all the cases – either civil or criminal - concerning minors younger than 16 years old.
