Indonesia Approves Castration for Sex Offenders Who Prey on Children

JAKARTA, Indonesia — The Indonesian president, Joko Widodo, signed a decree on Wednesday authorizing chemical castration for convicted child sex offenders and requiring those released on parole to wear electronic monitoring devices.

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.

  1. Punished for Life

    I personally don’t want any of Indonesia’s skilled treatment programs. I wonder if they are going to make their law retroactive like our great lawmakers do here in the US?

    And just to prove how tough they are on Drug Traffic problem….let’s just shoot the bastards. Great solution you IDIOTS.

    It’s not quite that bad here yet, but if we don’t do something soon who knows?

    How about they take the funding and use it to figure out how to prevent people from ever getting to the point where preying on children is a reasonable option in their mind? That way there are no offenders or victims in the long run.

    10 years? In the U.S. of A. you’ll get that sentence for downloading some computer files, let alone gang rape. And I’m pretty sure you have to reach a pretty high bar to be a sex offender in Indonesia. They probably don’t count wizzing in public or a 19yr old with a 16 year old. As far as chemical castration….this story makes it seem like it just happens in some foreign country when in fact, California was the first state to make it mandatory for certain crimes.
