  3. Valere BERAMBAYE says:

    I am not agree with this part of law. Today many children do voluntarily the criminal actions because they are sure they don’t hold for responsible of their actions,juvenile deliquency comes from there.

    • Koestomo says:

      As Valere Berambaye said : “I am not agree with this part of law”. If I’m not mistaken , “AGREE” is a verb (to agree). So, which sentence is correct, ‘I am not agree’ or ‘I do not agree’. I’m sorry, I am not sure, wether I’m right or wrong.

      Sincerely yours,
