  1. Someone is charged for having sexual intercourse with an underage female and is sent to prison. But the authorities will not disclosed the individual name and address. But if they catch you urinating in public you get charge and your name and your address is publish all over the news. It this total madness. Which one is worst; urinating in public or having sexual intercourse with underage girls? The system just crazy. They address the individual as a sexual predator but they still not disclosing is name. Total Madness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. This piece of legislation which makes reference to withholding the name of a sexual predator needs to be revisited,how would the citizen know that a sexual predator is our there whether on bail or release for prison after serving their time.One of our biggest problem is the almost non revisiting of some of our out dated laws, i have never heard governments go to parliament to pass new legislations or amend or remove out dated law,its always about borrowing money.If there the one thing we can take from the United States is the aggressive the revisit their law when there are loophole.

    • Because EVERYONE charged, for whatever offense is deemed UNTIL he/she pleads or is PROVEN GUILTY, (despite public opinion).
      And since sex crimes carry a stigma for both accused and victim, their IDENTITY (and by extension their dignity is preserved if they are vindicated)

      This is NOT indigenous to this jurisdiction, but also INTERNATIONALLY, including the great USA and the UK. It may also even be a HUMAN RIGHT.

      How would you feel, if you were FALSELY accused of a sex crime,and your name and image smeared all over social media?

      This is NOT an excuse to shield or defend actual perpetrators, but their right to a fair and unbiased trial until they are actually FOUND GUILTY.

  3. The law states the the name of the offender and victim shall be with held until such time the offender is found guilty or innocent in a court of law. So they cannot give any names.

  4. Yes it is rape! Kids r sp naive and need guidance, therefore that man is wrong for sleeping with an underage girl. He should be ashamed of himself. Instead he should be telling the girl this is not right not encourage it. What he get hold.

  5. The problem is we have to many big shots that have been acused of molesting children.They created the laws,to protect themselves from public humiliation,and keep on doing their dirty thing
