 Sexual assault on children: over 70percent of 301 crimes committed by acquaintances were exposed last year


According to the statistics of girl child protection, 301 cases of sexually assaulted children were exposed in 2019, with more than 800 victims. In 301 cases, 212 cases were committed by acquaintances, accounting for 70.43%; 82 cases were committed by strangers, accounting for 27.24%; 7 cases did not show interpersonal relationship. The proportion of acquaintances committing crimes is high. According to the reports released by girl child protection in recent years, the proportion of acquaintances committing crimes has been high, the highest proportion is 87.87% (2014).

In 212 cases of acquaintances, teachers and staff (including training teachers) accounted for 35.85%; family relatives and friends accounted for 12.74%; neighbors (including fellow villagers) accounted for 11.32%; family members (fathers, stepfathers, etc.) accounted for 10.38%; netizens accounted for 9.91%; other life contacts accounted for 19.81%.

According to the analysis of the report, the crimes committed by family members are more hidden, and the follow-up governance and related work are more difficult. Many cases of sexual assault in the family show that the victims are often afraid to speak up and call the police to protect their rights in consideration of family, ethics, life security and other factors.

Therefore, the girl child protection suggests that the national guardianship system should be improved for minors who are victims of sexual assault. In addition to depriving the guardianship of minors who are victims of sexual assault by their guardians, a more perfect system should also be provided for minors to protect their rights and reduce their injuries.
