Congratulatory message from the Minister of Justice, Fadei Nagacevschi on the occasion of the International Child Rights Day
Since the 1989 year, on 20 of November it is annually celebrated the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Also, the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) celebrates the International Day of the Rights of the Child. This reason is a distinguished opportunity to express my sincere feeling of support and urge for the lasting consolidation of the protection of the rights of children, those who are weaker, more helpless, more vulnerable and more in difficulty than us, the adults.
The celebration of this international day is meant to raise awareness and awake in each of us that childish spirit, which, in fact, once defined us, made us feel a need for help and support, in certain stages of childhood.
Since children are our future, they are the ones who will ensure the continuity of life. They deserve and must be protected, respected, cared, correctly educated. They deserve an active involvement of the family in their lives, of those who are dear and close to them.
In current situation of a continuously modernizing society that goes along with advanced information technologies, the primary objective at worldwide level, is to support and raise awareness of the situation of children, their needs, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic, in order to ensure an harmonious habitat for the continuous development of their personality, to fully prepare them for a dignified, independent and decent life and living in society, in the spirit of peace, dignity, freedom, tolerance, equality, solidarity and humanity.
As Minister of Justice, I join those who promote those sacred values of protecting the rights of children in any situation, including national and international partners. I fully hope that through the synergy of joint efforts it will be possible to effectively strengthen the institution and mechanism for the protection of children's rights.
With special respect,
Minister of Justice
