Malaysian police have announced a plan to name sex offenders in newspapers and internet sites. A registry is planned for all types of sex offenders, including pedophiles, and will include the offenders’ photographs. “We will let the public know what type of crime the convicted person had committed and to be wary of him if he is in their neighbourhood,” inspector general of police Tan Sri Musa Hassan told the Malaysian daily ‘The Star.’ The measure is aimed at curbing the attacks on children, Hassan explained.

“We know some may say why punish them again, but in view of the current trend of children going missing and being sexually assaulted we have to take drastic measures,” he said….Malaysia also plans to share information on sex offenders with security agencies of other countries.
