A total of 13,130 cases were reported from January to June, 40.4 percent more than during the same period in 2009, and 9,039 of those cases, an increase of 39.77 percent, were confirmed, according to MOI statistics. Those aged 6-11 accounted for 3,305, or 36.56 percent, of the victims, and those aged 0-5 accounted for 2,262, or 25.03 percent. On the background of the abusers, 6,512, or 75.02 percent, were the victims’ parents or foster parents. The number of abusers who were live-in partners of one of the parents was up 49.3 percent from last year to reach 212, while the number of abusers who were relatives of the victims but not their parents jumped 42.11 percent to 459.
