Gusti Ayu Agung Yuli Marhaeningsih, a legal counsel at the center, said, “So she was married off after she was raped by her cousin and pregnant. But then after the child was born, she was raped by her own in-law,” Yuli said. 

The incident took place in 2019 and Mawar gave birth to her child earlier this year. However, Mawar was later raped by her father-in-law, who is also her uncle.

Mawar and her parents have reportedly spoken to officers at P2TP2A at this point, who gave more details about the incident. The family has yet to file an official report regarding the two rape incidents, though officers are encouraging them to take the matter to the police. 

Yuli noted that the victim and her family are not very well-informed on matters of the law, and were clueless about the steps they could have taken. 

The National Commission on Violence Against Women (Komnas Perempuan), Maria underscored that the case showcased how sexual violence, including rape, could happen at any time.

Maria noted that the perpetrators have violated Indonesia’s Child Protection Law, which stipulates that rape of a minor is punishable by up to 15 years in prison. In addition, Mawar’s case also highlights the prevalence of marrying off rape victims to their rapists in Indonesia. 

“Marrying off the victim of rape with her rapist is not a solution, but it aggravates the victim’s healing process,” Maria said. 

Maria noted that the police and community must band together to eradicate violence against women and children.
