Maldives government to review laws that “victimise” sexually abused minors.

Dopo l'aberrante incriminazione della ragazza violentata dal patrigno (, si fa strada la possibilità di una correzione della legge.
The Maldivian government has today said it will review and potentially “correct” laws in the country it claims victimise young women and minors who have suffered sexual abuse.
President’s Office Media Secretary Masood Imad told Minivan News the government would be holding consultations with the Ministry of Islamic Affairs and other relevant authorities to discuss how minors who have been sexually abused were being treated in the country.
The comments were made as the Prosecutor General (PG’s) Office today confirmed that it would be pressing criminal charges against a 15 year-old girl from the island of Feydhoo in Shaviyani Atoll for having “consensual sexual relations”.
A spokesperson for the PG’s Office said the charges against the minor were unrelated to a separate case against the girl’s stepfather over allegations he had sexually abused her.
