Madagascar Passes Bill To Castrate Child Rapists

Madagascar's justice minister defended a new bill Friday to castrate child rapists, with the measure deemed "cruel, inhuman and degrading" by Amnesty International.

The upper house Senate approved the measure permitting chemical and surgical castration Wednesday after it had been voted through by the National Assembly earlier this month.

Amnesty International urged Antananarivo to drop the proposed law, saying it would not resolve the problem of paedophilia.

But Justice Minister Landy Mbolatiana Randriamanantenasoa told AFP that the large Indian ocean island "is a sovereign country that has every right to amend its laws".

I'm all for it. I just hope nobody ever gets wrongfully convicted.
