The CRC made its decision after hearing a petition from six Finnish children who were born in Syria to parents who were allegedly part of the ISIL terrorist network, also known as Da’esh.

They are still in the notorious Al-Hol camp, which is now controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which are backed by the West and fighting against the Damascus government for a federalized and democratic country.

Ann Skelton, a committee member, said, “It has been well documented that the situation of the children in the camps is inhumane.” They don’t have water, food, or medical care and are in danger of dying soon. ”

Demand for action

According to a news release on the decision, three of the kids who were allowed to leave the Al-Hol camp on their own initiative with their moms eventually reached Finland since family members brought the matter before the UN Committee in 2019.

The remaining three kids, now between the ages of five and six, are still held captive in fortified camps in what is still technically a war zone.

Ms. Skelton stressed, “We ask Finland to act quickly and decisively to protect the lives of these children and get them back to their families.”

Committee conclusions

The Committee decided that Finland has the duty and power to take action to bring its citizens who are being held in camps in Syria back to Finland to protect them from a very serious threat to their lives.

People also think that keeping them locked up for a long time in dangerous places could be cruel and humiliating treatment or punishment.

The CRC also urged Finland to act quickly to return the final three kids still stuck in Al-Hol.

It has requested Finland to take more steps to lessen the dangers to life, survival, and development while they are still in northeast Syria.

Previous reprimands

The Committee has now looked at kids living in refugee camps in northern Syria.

It had already found that the Child Rights Convention had been broken in three cases brought against France by French people whose grandchildren, nieces, and nephews were being held in camps in Rawj, Ayn Isa, and Al-Hol by Kurdish troops.

These instances involved 49 kids whose parents allegedly worked with the terrorist organization ISIL.

Some were born in Syria, while others went there when they were very young, travelling with their French parents.
