Expresses its profound outrage at evidence of detention, torture and inhuman treatment of children in South Africa and Namibia; demands the immediate and unconditional release of children held in detention in those countries; demands also the immediate dismantlement of the so-called "rehabilitation camps" and "re-education centres" in South Africa, since they only serve the racist regime's strategy of physically and mentally abusing black South African children; strongly condemns the racist régime of South Africa for its forced recruitment, torture and inhuman treatment of Namibian children with the objective of turning them into their agents against the Namibian people; requests all relevant UN bodies, specialized agencies and non-governmental organizations to intensify the world-wide campaign aimed at drawing attention to, monitoring and exposing these inhuman practices; requests the Commission on Human Rights to continue to pay special attention to the question of detention, torture and other inhuman treatment of children in South Africa and Namibia.
