INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Chairman of the Indonesian Institute of Child Protection (LPAI) Seto Mulyadi said children should not be subjected to stigma for the actions of their parents, including children alleged perpetrators of terror.
"As good as any parents, the children they deliver do not deserve the sap due to the terror they allege to do," Seto said through a press release received in Jakarta on Friday (5/25/2018)
Seto said it was regulated in Article 59 of Law Number 23 Year 2002 regarding Child Protection. The rights or best interests of suspected terrorist children should still be fulfilled.
According to Seto, the expulsion and alienation of suspected terrorist children is a serious violation of the Child Protection Act.
Especially when the state insists that "suspected terrorist children" can be likened to "terrorist children", even though no legal process has ever been established to establish the status.
"The state is required to be consequent to provide special protection to children victims of terrorism networks," he said.
Seto is afraid of neglect by the state and public persecution of the children of convicted and terrorist prisoners will precisely create a precondition for them to actually follow violent behavior as a means of achieving goals.
As is known, a number of acts of terror that occurred involving children, including as victims and even perpetrators. Such as suicide bombing in three churches in Surabaya and rusunawa in Sidoarjo and Mapolrestabes Surabaya.
