Unreported World, Burundi: Boys Behind Bars

Reporter Ramita Navai and director Wael Dabbous travel to Burundi to investigate the plight of child prisoners.

They reveal how the war-torn country has no juvenile justice system, so teenagers are locked up for years without trial in dangerous adult jails. They face violence and constant sexual abuse. For most, 62-year-old Pierre-Claver Mbonimpa is the only hope. While wrongly imprisoned himself, he found the body of a murdered child inmate, was deeply affected and decided to devote his life fighting for victims of injustice.
