President Barack Obama and U.S. Congress to stop child abuse and violence against women in Djibouti.

Time to stop child abuse and violence against women. Time to stop Denial of Justice and Impunity.

• I accuse the justice of Djibouti : Denial of public trial and to violate the constitutional rights of Kaltoun.

REMINDERS TO THE AUTHORITIES OF DJIBOUTI:Exploitation and sexual abuse in the enclosure and around schools pose a serious and urgent problem that requires greater attention to justice and Djibouti policies. In response to this problem, the Pan African Preparatory Conference for the World Congress on Sexual exploitation (Rio, 2008) made ​​the following recommendations:
• Improve methods for data collection and their releases so that governments and the international community can better understand the extent of the problem.
• Encourage greater coordination between jurisdictions and between agencies to facilitate the development of national plans for codes of conduct for teachers and integrate services of child protection in order to better monitor and evaluate them.
• Develop strategies to address the multidimensional impacts of violence and sexual abuse, with particular emphasis on the links between sexual exploitation, child abuse on the one hand and poverty and social exclusion in communities secondly.
• I remind to the authorities of Djibouti : the rules of international humanitarian law, including the Geneva Conventions of 1949 and the Additional Protocols of 1977 thereto.
• I remind to the authorities of Djibouti : the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court reported gender-based crimes and sexual violence and for international criminal tribunals, rape and other forms of sexual violence can constitute crimes war crimes, crimes against humanity or elements of the crime of genocide or torture.
• I remind to the authorities of Djibouti, the resolutions of the Council of Human Rights following :- 17/11 of 17 June 2011 on the intensification of efforts to eliminate all forms of violence against women: ensuring that due diligence is exercised in protection;- 20/6 of 5 July 2012 on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women- And 20/12 of 5 July 2012 on the intensification of efforts to eliminate all forms of violence against women: remedies for women who were victims of violence.

• In addition, we require the Djiboutian government the immediate ratification of the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (pending since 1992) - ▶ / ratification /

• More generally, we ask the Djiboutian government to comply with the provisions of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, regional and international instruments on human rights."Violence committed against the smallest member of the human species affects all humanity. The freedom of a man is a piece of universal freedom, you can not touch one without compromising the other. "[Victor Schoelcher, the decree for the abolition of slavery Author in France in 1848.]
