The State Hluttaw Representative U Teh Reh from Pruhso Township says the judiciary on child rapes should not be delayed as there are some kinds of rape that the child rape changed to adult rape in Pruhso Township.

“we didn’t know who the culprit is. So, it becomes the culprit gives the authorities a bribe to reduce a sentence. If they do like this, it is very harmful to our local women,” said U Teh Reh.

It says the Hluttaw Representative did not give exact answer although it was asked to him within State Hluttaw meeting on last February 14 regarding to this issue. It also says the child rape happened in Pruhso Township is still being investigated in Loikaw District Court, and the participants have asked that they would like to know how the government is doing in finding the real culprit.

“In case of rape, it has occurred for 3 times in Pruhso region; 2 times are child rapes and another one changed from child rape to adult rape. Why I asked this question is because, like the rape happening in our region and if I say clearly, regarding to the adult rape, it was the child rape at first. Later it changed to adult rape.” U Teh Reh says.

Related to the judiciary delay, the Federal Training Team Senior Trainer Kaing Kyaw Moe says, “What I see is, in all of these pivots, we currently do not have federal or something like this. In this transition to democracy, however, if one out of the main government administration or judiciary, nominated from election, is weak, the other ones would fall-down as well. So, each one of them are overlapping. In fact, everything in the institution is supposed to be interdependent and we need to make it more powerful. What I mean is the judiciary system would be weak if the rests are weak.”

U Teh Reh says as the child rape changed to adult rape, it is the attempt the defendants are trying to reduce a sentence.
