Tunisia-HRW requests Tunisia to repatriate 200 children of Daesh suspects

Human Rights Watch (HRW) has requested on Tunisia to repatriate approximately 200 children of speculated Daesh fighters who are currently stranded or held in congested camps or prisons across Libya, Iraq and Syria.
The organisation embraced statements issued last month that Tunisia had brought home six orphaned children of Daesh members from Libya as a “step toward protecting” their rights. However, they have asked the authorities in Tunis to do their utmost to bring back at least 36 other children who remain in Libya, in addition to some 160 more who are assumed to be held in Syria and Iraq.
“Children should not be punished for the purported crimes of their parents,” insisted HRW’s Tunisia Director, Amna Guellali.
The children still in Libya are assumed to be held in prisons with their mothers,” HRW added. “They should also be allowed to return home pending investigations.”
