FACTORS AND SOCIO-CRIMINOLOGICAL CONSEQUENCES OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AGAINST CHILDREN Investigation realized on ancient victims, street children and retarded pupils in Butembo City, DR Congo; January-March 2018



In the name of peace and development, human rights and vulnerable people whose children are popularized everywhere with pomp. The international institutions and the legal instruments that underlie them in the countries make it an exciting field of battle. They are investing huge amounts of money for investigations, training, and repression, trying to minimize, but to no avail, the growth of crime. On the contrary, crime takes the sensor. Children are abused and then forgotten in homes where they are supposed to be better secured. In addition to the main factors of domestic violence against children, this study demonstrates the unfortunate socio-criminological consequences, negatively affecting the good growth of victims. The goal is to alert our readers, governments and justice to the ongoing atrocities endured by these fragile persons, transforming them into danger for society. The experience was conducted in Butembo in RD.Congo on street children, retarded pupils for this cause and teachers, former victims. Research has shown that over 90% of children who are abused at home have a bad life. As adults, some martyred theirs because of domestic violence endured.
