Indonesia Approves Chemical Castration Of All Child Rapists

Indonesian President Joko Widodo has signed an emergency decree which allows child sex offenders to be chemically castrated and planted with microchips that monitors their movements.

The new punishment comes in response to the brutal gang rape and murder in April of a 14-year-old girl on her way home on the island of Sumatra. Seven teenage boys were each sentenced to 10 years in prison for the crime, which prompted national outrage and revived previous calls for chemical castration as a punishment against child sex offenders.

NAN reports that announcing the new law, President Joko said, “Extraordinary crime requires extraordinary measures. The decree also allows judges to hand down life sentences or death sentences to people convicted of child rape”.


“Convicts can be micro chipped for easy monitoring by authorities and their names may be published,” he noted.
