Tusk Wants Pedophiles 'Chemically Castrated'
September 24, 2008   
Article's tools:

Prime Minister Donald Tusk has said he wants pedophiles who have served their sentences to be "chemically castrated." Tusk says he wants to see Poland have "the most repressive and rigorous laws against criminals who rape children."

Tusk clarified his remarks by saying that so-called chemical castration would apply to those who "manifest the desires their illness causes in a particularly cruel way." He added that the court would sentence the offender to compulsory treatment, while expert doctors would decide what it would entail and how long it would last. He also said he "strongly recommended" changing the law to make "the courts obligated to send this kind of pervert for compulsory treatment once their prison term ends."

Tusk has also promised heavier sentences for particularly cruel pedophiles. He said this should be from three to 15 years' imprisonment, adding that the government wanted to review the regulations that apply to pedophiles in Europe so as to "build model regulations in Poland, that is, the most repressive and rigorous laws against criminals who rape children."

A special taskforce, which has been working on the issue for several months and which includes officials from the health and justice ministries and the prime minister's office, will soon be presenting proposals for legislation that would force pedophiles to undergo compulsory chemical treatment to reduce their sex drive.
