Thailand: Pardon for Child Abusers if they marry their Victims

In the US, it's the charges of Genarlow Wilson, who faces 10 years in prison for having sex with 15-year old when he had been age 17. In Germany it is 17-year old Marco Weiss' detention in an turkish penitentary. He is is alleged having abused a 13-year old british girl.

In Thailand there is a discussion about the law on child abuse, too.
Child-right activist Sapphasit Khumpraphan plans to petition His Majesty the King of Thailand in order to change the Thai Criminal Code., which allows courts to pardon offenders of child abuse of any age if they agree to marry the victim!

Sapphasit, director of the Centre for the Protection of Children's Rights Foundation, sais, a National Legislative Assembly (NLA) subcommittee had initially proposed only to pardon offenders up to the age 18 if they marry the victims.
The crusial factor of that rule was the age difference between offender nd victim:"A child's future should not be decided in legal squabbles. The order could be based on inaccurate information supplied to judges," he said. The activist sais, the NLA simply jumped to the conclusion that this should be decided by the court and passed the entire article in the first reading.
