The French government is considering a bill that could set the minimum legal age for sexual consent for the first time with the country’s justice minister saying Monday she thinks 13 years old could be a reasonable age, The Associated Press. Justice Minister Nicole Belloubet told France's RTL radio network age 13 was a "limit that is worth considering" for the upcoming legislation, the report said. However, Belloubet added judges should also have the ability to assess whether someone was old enough to give consent in individual situations.

An inter-ministerial committee is set to recommend lowering the age of consent from 18 to 16, the Times of Malta has learnt. By law, a 16-year-old can get married but can end up in prison if they have sex with somebody under 18. When contacted by this paper, government whip Godfrey Farrugia said the inter-ministerial committee, which he chairs, would soon be forwarding its recommendations to Civil Liberties Minister Helena Dalli. The committee was set up following a report Dr Farrugia tabled in Parliament earlier this year, which was compiled as a result of discussions between the parliamentary committees for health, family affairs and social affairs. Dr Farrugia said the inter-ministerial committee had been meeting throughout the summer and was now in the final stages of preparing its report. The recommendation to lower the age of consent will be presented to Cabinet and put to public consultation. “There is a plan; things are moving forward. In my personal opinion, I can see lowering the age of consent being discussed in Parliament early next year,” Dr Farrugia said. Last Saturday, a 15-year-old girl and a 17-year-old boy were arraigned for having sex. The police got to know...
