Kerala HC issues guidelines to preserve anonymity of child abuse survivors in POCSO cases

The Court issued the guidelines after voicing concern that "in several matters instituted before this court where victim anonymity is to be maintained, the identity of the victim is disclosed directly or indirectly."

The Kerala High Court on Wednesday issued guidelines to ensure that the identity of child abuse survivors is kept confidential and protected during the conduct of POCSO cases.

These guidelines were issued while pronouncing the judgment on a plea moved challenging the grant of bail by a Special Court to an accused in a case under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
