Group to hold walk for raped teenager on 7 June 2015

It's kind of sad that such episode happened in my beloved country. Despite the loopholes of the existing law with regard to statutory rape, I personally think the lawyer defending the 60 year-old man charged with raping a minor should feel ashamed of his decision to take up his case.

In solidarity to the poor girl, let us ensure this black episode won't happen again.



A coalition of women and children's civil society groups, Citizens Against Rape, will hold a walk in Kuala Lumpur this Sunday to raise awareness on protecting children in the wake of the acquittal of a 60-year-old man charged with raping a minor in Sibu four years ago. The 14-year-old girl became pregnant and in 2012 gave birth to a son. DNA tests showed that the man, Bunya Jalong, was the biological father of the child.

The court acquitted the man based on the legal definition of “sexual intercourse” which means only penile penetration.
