Earlier this year, Kazakhstan passed a law implementing the use of chemical castrations, which are injections intended to prevent a sex offender from committing another offense. Kazakhstan’s president Nursultan Nazarbayev set aside $37,000 to fund 2,000 castrations. Now, Kazakhstan has announced a law where the country’s worst offending child sex offenders will have their genitals surgically removed. The move follows complaints from Members of Parliament that chemical castration is not deterring child sex offenders.
Madagascar’s parliament has also approved a new law which will see pedophiles surgically castrated for their crimes. On February 2, 2024 Madagascar’s parliament, The National Assembly, approved a law which legalised the castration of child rapists.
