Welcome to Legal Clinic Myanmar

Daw Hla Hla (Advocate) challenged whether capital punishment will reduce minor rape

In March 18th, 2018, in the campaign for "ruling capital punishment for minor rape" Daw Hla Hla Yee (Advocate) said that there was no significant decline of minor rape cases as courts punished them with 20 years imprisonment since 2016.

It is necessary to be more convenient to inform those crimes and prosecute before court and to be less victim blaming and discrimination by people.
