Children are frequently victims of misconduct regarding the current widespread sexual abuse perpetrated by elders who are usually known by them, it is called pedophiles.

In addition, one of child protection policies to anticipate child sexual abuse increase including pedophiles, the Government issued a regulation (Perpu) No. 1 of 2016 on the second amendment of Act No. 23 of 2002 of the children protection. The Government Regulation (Perpu) No. 1 then is legislated as Act 17 of 2016.
