Paedophiles in PNG

“We do have paedophiles…but we are talking about it as if it’s outside of PNG borders…I tell you it’s happening here,” said Tessie Soi – clinical manager at POM FSC.

In 2016, according to statistics outlined by Family Support Centre, a total of 1152 cases were reported.

The month of September recorded the highest number of cases, particularly for females between the ages of 0 – 17 years old.

These incidents take place in familiar environments, by familiar people – always a case of broken trust.

Indonesia castration law 'will wipe out paedophilia'

He said Indonesia respected human rights but there would be "no compromise" when it came to punishing such sexual crimes.

Indonesia passed controversial laws earlier this month authorising chemical castration for paedophiles.

The laws were subject to fierce debate in parliament.

"Our constitution respects human rights, but when it comes to sexual crimes there is no compromise," President Widodo said.
