Q: How to report child molestation in China?

Are there any laws in China about statutory rape and child molestation? How can a foreigner report such a crime?
Will police even do anything but instead leave it to the family to resolve?

If you are working for a school, ask the FAO or your boss or other teachers first. They might help. They might even have mandatory reporting procedures.

I googled and found this:
http://english.chinaconcern.org/child-protection-policy
It's the international China Concern - Child Protection

There is a contact email, and perhaps they can give you information on who to report to. The organization itself works with disabled chinese children, but they would probably have correct information.

I also found 2 articles about child molestation cases in China, and another one stating that reports of molestation have increased (I need to find that one again).

The report about Hong Duo said this:

"According to Chinese law, people convicted of child molestation can face up to five years in prison. The law also sanctions more severe punishments for second offenses.".
http://www.globaltimes.cn/NEWS/tabid/99/ID/662168/Chinese-entertainer-ar...

So, apparently it can be reported and supposedly investigated or whatever. If you suspect child abuse,and you don't get an answer back from the ICC within a reasonable (short) amount of time, and the school wants to keep out of it, call the police. It's a start. If they won't look into it, ask in a hospital, school officials from other schools, or even a pharmacist. If you aren't proficient with the language, see if you can get someone to help you with it.

I have a feeling you're going to need some kind of proof, or the child will have to come forward and say something. Unfortunately, depending on the child's situation, and who is doing the abusing, she/he might fear speaking out.

Here are the other articles:

Thanks for being willing to report it. It takes a special strength to do so, especially in a country like China.

do not report it to an agency or group outside of china they might deport you but as the others said make sure you are in the right 100% no doubt about it. but also remember where you are it is somewhat acceptable in some areas for young girls (15and up) to be involved with an adult. report it to your FAO and leave it in their hands. whatever you do do not take this outside the country they at the very least will deport maybe even make you out to be the perpetrator in order to shame you and discredit you.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
