Local Government to amend laws on statutory rape

The proposal presented by the Minister of Justice to amend Section 363 of the  Penal Code (Statutory Rape) was approved by the Cabinet of Ministers today (19) as there is a contradiction in the law regarding statutory rape.

Section 363, however, regards rape as a serious offense and provides information on the specific offenses that fall under it.
