Unfortunately, his parents who would have clarified matters are both dead. He has been convicted for two years for stealing but the little boy says he never did.

Whatever the situation, our interest has to do with his age. If he is indeed a juvenile, as it appears he is, then our laws do not allow the imprisonment of juveniles in walled prisons. Rather, it makes provision for such kids to be sent to a Senior Correctional Centre.
