The teacher molested the students, the principal sheltered them, did not report the case and did not report it to the education authorities, which led the teacher to stretch out his salted pig hand again. The Education Bureau of Taixing City, Jiangsu Province, adopted the procuratorial suggestions and established mechanisms for reporting, investigating, accountability and punishment of sexual abuse. Recently, the Municipal Education Bureau took the initiative to inform the implementation of the procuratorial recommendations and the treatment of the principal.
In June 2016, Wu Liang (pseudonym), a primary school teacher in remote villages of Taixing City, used the opportunity of correcting homework to indecent an 8-year-old girl in her class twice. When the parents found out, they informed the school angrily. However, Liu Mou, the principal of the school, adopted the method of covering the lid, only to let Wu Liang stop serving as a teacher for the girl victims, and promised to take more care of the girl victims in her study and life. At the same time, kindness also advises parents to control the scope of knowledge for the sake of the girls reputation and future. In this way, under the principals comprehensive arrangement, the case was hidden in the snow.
However, in September 2018, Wu Liangs old trick repeated three times in the classroom to molest a 7-year-old girl in public. Relatives of the girl indignantly reported to the police. On October 31, 2018, Wu Liang was investigated by the public security organs and detained in criminal detention on the same day.
On November 30, 2018, the public security organs transferred Wu Liang to Taixing Procuratorate for examination and approval for arrest on suspicion of child molestation. The prosecutors review found that two years ago, a murdered girls mother reported to the school, but the principal only criticized and educated Wu Liang. It is this short-term protection behavior that breeds Wu Liangs fluky psychology of committing a crime again.
On February 27, 2019, Taixing Procuratorate brought a prosecution to the court on suspicion of child molestation by Wu Liang. On March 22, Taixing City Court sentenced Wu Liang to six yearsimprisonment on the first trial of child molestation, and prohibited Wu Liang from engaging in education, training, school security and other related professions within five years after the execution of his punishment.
In order to earnestly implement the No. 1 Procuratorial Recommendation of the Supreme Procuratorate, on March 11, Taixing Procuratorate issued a procuratorial recommendation to the Municipal Education Bureau, proposing to establish a special complaint channel for sexual abuse, increase the popularization of knowledge on prevention and response to sexual abuse, pay attention to the privacy protection and psychological counseling of the girl victims, strictly control the entry threshold for practicing teachers, strengthen the supervision of education and management of the teaching staff, and be serious according to law. Deal with those who violate the law and discipline.
The Municipal Bureau of Education earnestly adopted the procuratorial suggestions and transferred the headmaster Liu Mou to the Eighth Discipline Inspection and Supervision Group of the Municipal Commission for Discipline Inspection for investigation while establishing and perfecting the coordination mechanism of prevention of sexual assault, paying attention to the safety education of prevention of sexual assault, implementing the protection measures for the girl victims and strengthening the education of teachersethics.
