Child abuse on the rise

Date Posted: 1999-06-05

The number of child abuse cases on Okinawa in 1998 has risen to 115, a 10 percent increase over the same period a year earlier and the worst on record, the Children and Family Division of the Okinawa Prefectural Office announced Monday.

In the latest findings, child abuse is classified as either physical abuse (44 cases), neglect (54), sexual abuse (13) or psychological abuse (4).

However, the actual number of cases could be much larger, prefectural officials said, as figures are compiled only from reports filed by victims.
