CF's Next Move

Indonesia NGO & governmental group meeting
Indonesia NGO & governmental group meeting

On May 9, Compassion First President Mike Mercer met with governmental and non-governmental groups in Indonesia to discuss the filing of a petition for judicial review before the Constitutional Court of Indonesia.  The petition is requesting to change the law so that children can not be convicted in trafficking cases. Current cases are being "flipped" onto victims by the courts.  As a result, girls are being called to testify in court and ending up in prison. The law in its current state is directly impacting two Compassion First cases.

A good result in the judicial review case will allow CF and partners to scour the jails for victims who have been wrongly imprisoned.  The number of girls serving sentences is not known but minimal estimates suggest dozens of victims.  It is reasonable to assume that it is well over a hundred.
