Iván Roca, a 33-year-old member of the Chilean Independent Democratic Union, recently accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl.
However, Iván Roca did not blame his son, but believed that the girl’s parents did not protect the girl well.
In his defense, he said that although the girl is still young, It is still a woman’s physical characteristics, and her parents should protect her.
Chilean Parliament Iván Roca’s remarks in his defense of his son on suspicion of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl have become the focus of the country.
The Chilean politician said that although he was very small, he still “still has the physical characteristics of a woman”, the Argentine newspaper Infobae News.
When Iván Roca learned that his son was in pretrial detention by the court, he published the content of his defense through his social account, which caused a great uproar.
The congressman said: I went to prison to see my son, and I found that there were young people of his age in it.
It was sad that they were detained without considering the consequences beforehand because they were with minors.
Then it was said: “For these victims of minors, the law should give equal condemnation.” What would you think if your child faced and came into contact with these minors every day, but their parents did not responsibly “educating” them well, thus putting your child at risk.”
Iván Roca also said on social accounts that in cases like his son, the parents of young girls are also responsible: because despite the young age of the girl, her body is still “woman’s body”, and the parents of young girls must “manage and control” their children, only parents take it.
Only by taking action can tragedy be avoided.
As soon as his remarks were made, he was retweeted and commented crazily. People condemned the congressman’s bigotry.
Obviously, his son made a mistake, but he blamed others, throwing the pot on innocent victims, and even restraining others with “control”, as if your son would not make mistakes.
Not only ordinary people are dissatisfied, but also his former political partners are not on his side this time.
Isabel Pura Yaruf, former vice chairman of UDI, said: Iván Roca’s defense normalizes the abuse and rape of minors.
These remarks are “unacceptable”.
I condemn the violence, no On where it comes from.
Subsequently, under the pressure of public opinion, Iván Roca began to change his words and insisted that his message was “taken out of context”. And accused feminism of overinterpreting his remarks, “A word, one word, becomes another meaning?”
However, he still believes that it is irresponsible for underage parents to educate their children not to meet older men.
At present, Iván Roca’s 33-year-old son is still detained and awaits trial.
