Surprise checks on forced recruitment in Junin

Aiming to register cases of forced military recruitment, the People’s Defense office in Junín will make surprise visits to army bases in the region. The inspections will start in April.

A representative of the group told the Andina agency that at least nine bases will be inspected, including the 311 counter-terrorist battalion in Jauja and the 324 battalion in Satipo.

In 2006, similar inspections found six cases of teenagers being forcibly recruited, and a later case is still in progress.
