John Shepherd Lim, director of the Singapore Counselling Centre, said a police report ought to be made when a person’s modesty is violated, even when the alleged offenders are young.
“This is to let the offenders know it is seriously wrong and a criminal offence, which will in turn send a message that there are boundaries that cannot be crossed, regardless of age,” he said.
The consequences of not filing a police report could increase the likelihood of the culprit reoffending, while the victim could suffer from a sense of injustice, he said.
