New Laws protect children from abuse in Turkey

Turkish Prime Minister Ayşenur Islam has announced new draft laws that should help protect children from sexual abuse and forced marriage.

The laws will include longer sentences for those committing sexual offences against both children and adults, under 18s will be protected from forced marriages and will stay in the education system for a minimum of 12 years.

The bills include a requirement that any perpetrator who commits a sexual crime against a child will also be forced to stay away from that child for the rest of their life.
