Selangor police have revealed that since January, 75.7% of sexual crimes against children cases were committed by individuals known by the victim.

Selangor Criminal Investigation Department head Assistant Commissioner Fadzil Ahmat told The Star that these sexual predators might be the victims’ own father, stepfather, grandfather, older brother, babysitter’s husband or son, neighbour or even their mother’s boyfriend.

He also added that there is an increase in the number of reported cases, from 287 cases in 2017 to 333 cases this year.

From all the cases reported this year, 201 cases involved children below 18 with the predators already charged, 82 cases with “No Further Action” tags on them and 51 cases still pending.

He said, as quoted by The Star,

“We expect the number to increase further with the approaching school holidays. We hope for cooperation from parents to always monitor their children’s movement and actions, especially when accessing social media.”

ACP Fadzil also mentioned that among the factors leading to the increase of sexual crimes against children were parents’ tidak apa attitude towards their children’s activities, social media influence, peer influence and technological advancement.

In order to facilitate with the handling of these cases, the police have set up Child Interview Centres (CIC) at all contingents run by officers professionally trained for the task at hand.

To all the parents, family member and teachers, please be wary of sudden behavioural changes in children as this might be a warning sign that they are being victimised. No more tidak apa attitude please.
