PETALING JAYA: Branches of the special court handling sexual crimes against children should be set up faster to provide more efficient and easy access to justice for victims.

Bar Council child rights committee co-deputy chairman Ajeet Kaur said that so far, only two branches of the Special Criminal Court on Sexual Crimes Against Children have been set up since the idea for such special courts was mooted at the end of 2017.
