May 24, 2012 – South Korea is set to chemically castrate a convicted a serial rapist / sex offender, 45-year-old man identified as Park.
Mr Park was convicted of four rapes or attempted rapes on children under the age of 13.
This is the first time the country will employ the punishment under legislation passed in 2010, Korean media reported yesterday.
The legislation is intended for use against sexual deviants who are believed to likely re-offend.
This is a welcomed development!
