In these issues, violence against women and children, sexual assault, abuse of power, etc. are often included, and we need to root out them along with the evil dictatorship system. We can achieve it through legal justice or social punishment, known as social justice,” Deputy Minister Daw Ei Thinzar Maung stated.

It will be best if prevention can be made. Sexual harassment through power abuse has zero tolerance as well,” the Deputy Minister continued.
