Case of Child Abuse Increases in S. Korea

Pyongyang, January 26 (KCNA) — It was disclosed on Jan. 15 that the father of a family in Puchon City, Kyonggi Province, south Korea killed his 7 years old son, and put him in a refrigerator for over three years.

The south Korean KBS said that the recent case is not an individual one but part of overall social evils.
According to the recent information, 80 percent of perpetrators of child abuse are their parents and 84 percent of the crimes took place in families.
Various circles of south Korea are calling for making an urgent adoption of a law on preventing the child abuses.
However, the “National Assembly” is shunning the child abuse and its members are keen on partisan strife and power struggle for hegemony with the approach of the general election.
