Never identify a rape victim

The media nowadays very often identifies the rape victim. But it is a bad trend. As good journalists, you should never identify a rape victim.

Also never identify an accused who is a minor.

The situation is tricky if the victim wants to be identified and is aware of the consequences.

Photographs of the victims or accused who are minors should also never be published.
