LGU Atok conducts seminar on CICL
by Geoffrey B. Palao-ay Sr.

The local government of Atok conducted a seminar on the laws that protect children last Sept. 27 and 28 in Baguio City.

The seminar organized by the Municipal Child Protection Council aims to educate members of the council how to conduct interventions to children in conflict with the law (CICL) and in doing so, minimize crimes committed by minors in the municipality.

Participants to the seminar are barangay officials of the eight barangays of Atok.

Speakers from private and government entities involved in the implementation on child protection laws were invited to share their expertise and experiences on on handling rape and related matters.

Assistant Provincial Prosecutor Benedict K. Pataras suggested ways on how to prevent attempted and consummated rape, statutory rape, marital rape, acts of lasciviousness, reclusion perpetua, and other related matters.

C/Insp. Caroline Lacuata discussed Republic Act 9262 or An Act on Violence against Women and Children and other related laws. She focused her discussions on the different types of abuse such as physical, psychological, sexual and economic abuse. 

Problems on juvenile delinquency, causes, and essential control factors were discussed by broadcaster Christopher Bartolo. He said a “problem child” does not exist, but “a child with a problem.”

“They are delinquent because they are young, idealistic and sensitive,” Bartolo said. He also suggested practical measures how to address juvenile delinquency. He said during the formative years of a child, they should be guided by their parents, teachers, and community.

The topic on bullying and trafficking in children was handled by C/Insp. Divina Mencio, chief of the Regional Women and Children Protection Desk.  She delved on the need to stop bullying, which may lead to more serious crimes if not addressed.

Municipal Social Welfare Officer Julie P. Sabado challenged the participants to take immediate action and interventions to prevent children from dwelling into vices and crimes.
