Indonesian man who raped nine young girls is chemically neutered in a historic statement as part of severe new sentences for sex offenders
- Indonesian man first in the country for punishment of chemical castration
- Muh Aris bin Syukur was found guilty of raping nine young girls for years
- He is the first to be convicted on the basis of a new regulation introduced by the president
- However, many doctors in Indonesia have refused to perform the procedure
A child rapist is the first offender in Indonesia who has been sentenced to chemical castration.
The Indonesian man Muh Aris bin Syukur was convicted in stead of the law in an East Java court that introduced the death penalty and chemical castration for convicted pedophiles.
& # 39; This regulation aims to overcome the crisis caused by sexual violence against children & # 39 ;, said President Joko Widodo at the time of ratification.
& # 39; Sexual crimes against children are extraordinary crimes because they threaten the lives of children. & # 39;

Aris was convicted for the rape of nine girls between 2015 and 2018 in Mojokerto, but was not arrested for his crimes until 2018, Coconuts Jakarta reported.
& # 39; We hereby give the convicted person the extra punishment in the form of chemical castration & # 39 ;, was the court's ruling.
Despite the ratification of President Joko Widodo's regulations, there is still no means of chemical castration in the country.
As a result, the date of the penalty has yet to be determined.
Another obstacle to completing the procedure is the reduction of the medical industry in Indonesia, which claims that chemical castration violates their ethics.
The Indonesian Doctors Association said doctors would not perform chemical castration procedures because it violated a 2016 injunction by the Medical Ethics and Honors Council.
& # 39; Do not include doctors as executors of the extra punishment & # 39 ;, said IDI president Ilham Oetama Marsis in an official statement in 2016.
& # 39; Based on scientific evidence, chemical castration does not suppress the perpetrators' desire for sexual violence. & # 39;
Chemical castration has been used in other countries and the process requires a medical procedure where the culprit is injected with & # 39; anaphrodisiac & # 39; to reduce sexual desire and libido.
The treatment takes at least three to five years and data from Scandinavian countries applying the procedure shows that the offensive rates fall from 40 percent to just five percent, The sun reported.
