[경주=뉴시스] Reporter Eunhee Lee = The city of Gyeongju, Gyeongsangbuk-do, decided to establish a’Child Protection Team’ dedicated to preventing child abuse and protecting victims of child abuse, and to start operating in earnest.

Gyeongju Mayor Joo Nak-young said in a non-face-to-face briefing on the 18th and said that eight people including the team leader and four dedicated child abuse officials were assigned.

The main measures of Gyeongju City are ▲ improvement of legal and institutional protection system ▲ child safety call reporting system ▲ reinforcement of treatment and protection of victims ▲ construction of a public safety net for citizens.

To this end, the’Child Abuse Prevention and Victim Protection Ordinance’ is enacted.

The ordinance contains the obligation to ensure the safety of children and prohibit abuse, compensation for reporters, full support for treatment expenses for children victims of abuse, and grounds for designation of a dedicated medical institution.

The authority to manage and supervise child protection facilities is also strengthened. The’Infant Child Care Ordinance’ will also be revised drastically with the aim of providing or stopping subsidies for childcare facilities according to the degree of child abuse.

A child safe call reporting system that guarantees anonymity will be installed,’I-Shield Report Box’, and support and surveillance will be strengthened by designating a’Gyeongju child keeper’. In addition, a shelter for girls and a care center will be expanded.

Gyeongju Mayor Joo Nak-young said, “We will quickly enact laws and implement strong preventive measures so that cases such as Jung In-yang, who died unfortunately for 16 months without seeing their dreams, will never happen again.” He urged you to join us in moving to Gyeongju City.”
