This is Hong Young-jae.
Reports of suspected abuse of Miss A, who died last month after 16 months, have already started five months ago.
There have been three reports of bruising on the child's body or leaving the child alone in the car.
Each time the police and child protection agencies returned the child to the parents without finding evidence of abuse.
Under the current Child Abuse Penalty Act, the victim is quarantined and protected if the possibility of abuse is high.

If bruises and wounds are found on the body of a child who has received two reports of suspected abuse within a year, a method to immediately separate the child from the guardian without a local government decision is introduced through a law revision.
Regardless of the reporting period, first aid measures have been required for the second report of suspected abuse.
