Victims rarely press charges

Few victims turn to the courts to seek justice and compensation.


“There have not been many cases,” said Bao Peilun, a director at Shanghai Hengxin Law Firm.


Victims can look at sexual harassment cases that occur in offices, said Bao. Such victims usually seek compensation for emotional damage, he added.


Meanwhile, collecting evidence is relatively difficult, Bao said. The video clips and pictures stored on mobile phones and other devices can be viewed as evidence, said Bao. But he added defendants will try to prove these are fake.


“It’s mostly a personal issue in China where “face” and privacy seem more important to the victims,” Bao said.
