Kuruleca: Profile all perpetrators

PSYCHOLOGIST Selina Kuruleca says the use of marijuana and the easy access to pornography are not the only contributing factors to the increase occurrences of rape in the country.

The issue of sexual violence against children and girls has also been the common subject of talks on the street and has shocked the nation with the youngest victim being a nine-month-old baby that was reported to police last year.

"This is a very big mistake, marijuana and pornographic movies were not only the cause of this," Ms Kuruleca said.

She said since January this year, she had received a total of 50 cases of rape.

Ms Kuruleca said she recommended a profiling to be done to all perpetrators that would give a clear understanding on what would be the cause of the problem.

Ms Kuruleca said 92 to 93 per cent of the perpetrators were related to the victim.
