Under consideration PE2064: Ensure that under 16s charged with rape are treated as adults in the criminal justice system
Calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to ensure that under 16s charged with rape are treated as adults in the criminal justice system.
Previous action taken
I've reached out to the Scottish Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service and the Lord Advocate.
I've bombarded the Ministry of Defence for 3 years.
Under 16s charged with rape or sexual assault are protected and treated as children. Where are the human rights of child victims? Rape is an adult crime and should be treated as such. I believe that such individuals should be added to the sex offenders register.
