Russia considers a law on chemical castration of pedophils
The author of the bill initiates mandatory castration for those perpetrators who rape 14 years old children or commits other serious crime
A bill on chemical castration of pedophils has been submitted for consideration to the Russian State Duma, as reported by Interfax. In 2012, the Russian MPs have already passed a law toughening penalties for criminals and pedophiles permitting voluntary chemical castration of convicted in exchange for reduced prison sentence.
However, according to the author of the new bill Senator Anton Belyakov, the problem of the growth of crimes against sexual inviolability of minors still have not been solved in Russia.
According to the Russia's Ministry of Internal Affairs, from 2009 to 2013. 2.9-fold increase in the number of rapes of minors aged 14 to 17 years was observed, and even more, 4.2 times increase in the number of rape victims who have not attained the age of fourteen.
"World experience of many countries (Germany, Denmark, USA, Poland) proves the effectiveness of the procedure of chemical castration, which is really capable to minimize the likelihood of relapse among those convicted of violence against minors," said Belyakov. According to his initiative, if the perpetrator committs a serious crime (such as rape of a person under 14 years of age), chemical castration will be appointed by the court on a mandatory basis.
