Zedendelinqent not good at Netherlands ' Risk Assessment '

The risk that a sex offender again in the goes wrong, is not well assessed.

Thereby connect the treatment is not sufficient. To that conclusion comes the National Rapporteur on trafficking in human beings and sexual violence against children, Corinne Dettmeijer, in a report that was published Sunday.

According to Dettmeijer there is abroad a good method available to assess the risk of recidivism. That is used in the United States and Great Britain. A major advantage of this method is that the suspect does not have to work with, while still a reliable assessment is made. Thereby is more often a court ruling possible.

Because in Netherlands not the appropriate method for estimating recidivism risk is used, is also not good to say what the appropriate treatment should be and there is likely to be over-or inadequate treatment, according to Dettmeijer.
