Victims of sexual harassment on train decline to report to police
The Jakarta Post
Greater Jakarta train operator PT Kereta Commuter Indonesia (KCI) has received 13 reports of alleged sexual harassment inside trains since January, but none of the victims have filed reports with the police.
KCI vice president of corporate communications Eva Chairunisa said sexual harassment victims often refused to report cases because they did not want to deal with the police.
There were also victims who wanted to report their case to the police, but later made peace with the alleged offender at a police station, Eva said.
Eva said the company encouraged the victims to report sexual harassment incidents to the police to prevent similar cases from happening in the future.
“PT KCI will assist victims who want to report the case to the police. We will not let the victims undergo the legal procedure alone,” Eva said on Wednesday as quoted by kompas.com. (cal/wit)
