“We also made diplomatic visits to Ecuador and Brazil to observe regulations related to sexual violence in the destination countries,” Willy said in the Parliament Building on Wednesday, December 8.

The Parliament then worked out article by article up to the formulation of the title of the law. The name of the bill on the eradication of sexual violence was changed to RUU TPKS considering that the law would be more effective in protecting victims and detaining perpetrators of sexual violence and harassment.
