EUMM welcomes the release of minors following activation of the Hotline

The EU Monitoring Mission welcomes the release of five minors, who were held in Tskhinvali for crossing the Administrative Boundary Line (ABL) in the Sachkhere region.

EUMM activated the Hotline without delay upon receiving the information on 1 May and requested the immediate release of the minors, which took place in Ergneti earlier today.

Although the detention of minors is rare along the ABL, EUMM would like to call on all sides to safeguard the best interest of children in the conflict affected population.
