Do not expose child victims through media: Parliamentary Caucus for Children | Sri Lanka News


Immediate measures should be taken to prevent the exposure of child victims and the child accused through the media as many social problems have arisen due to such exposures, Chair of the Parliamentary Caucus for Children Rohini Kumari Wijerathna.

This was mentioned at the Parliamentary Caucus for Children in Parliament recently.

It was pointed out by the Members of Parliament that the exposure of the identities of children through the media, especially in cases of child molestation and child abuse, has a great impact on the lives of the children concerned.

The importance of providing vocational training to children in orphanages was discussed at length, and the need for a suitable program to socialize children over 18 years of age and the importance of creating an environment for them to engage in self-employment was also emphasized.

In addition to that, introducing a foster parent system, placing children in the care of relatives, local adoptions, etc. were also discussed in the forum as alternative care proposals for children.

Furthermore, attention was paid to matters such as referring child suspects to the conciliation board for minor offenses, subjecting them to other alternative punishments, and using institutional reform as the last option.
