Positive law in Indonesia is now beginning to want to specifically regulate forms of protection for the prevention and control of sexual violence against children. But to make it happen requires the efforts of all parties involved in it. We don't just burden it with the government, but we need support from law enforcement and the community. In addition to realizing legal protection for victims of sexual violence, it is necessary to hold a renewal of criminal law. Efforts to reform the Criminal Code in the case of pedophilia criminal cases is to provide castration punishment as a legal effort to provide a deterrent effect for the perpetrators. In addressingthis action, the government enacted Law Number 17 of 2016 concerning the Establishment of Government Regulations in lieu of Law Number 1 of 2016 concerning the second Amendment to Law Number 23 of 2002 concerning Child Protection. In this Law amend two articles from the previous Law, namely Article 81 A. These Articles regulate castration punishment for perpetrators of sexual violence.
