- child abuse; the necessity of conviction; the crime of intentional harm; the principle of priority of formal interpretation
The abuse of children under the age of 14 by non-family members is a vacuum zone in the current criminal law. From the perspective of harmful consequences and social impact, even child abuse committed by non-family members is necessary to be criminalized. In the choice of the path of conviction, the new crime of child abuse and the expansion of the subject of the crime of abuse do not meet the requirements of the principles of criminal law. Based on the principle of limited formal interpretation, child abuse should be regulated through the crime of intentional injury, and through judicial interpretations, it is determined that child abuse does not have to follow the “minor injury” standard, and mental injury is also included.
