Re: The Sexual Assault of a Minor

Sep 20, 2023

The Torchbearers Youth Association has noted the latest reported sexual assault of a nine-year old child. We are alarmed by the uptick in sexual assaults that is plaguing our nation. We add our voices with the many that wish to ensure that the Protection Against Violence Bill that was debated on Thursday, July 27th, 2023, in the House of Assembly addresses the concerns of all stakeholders it is meant to protect.

We await the results of a full and thorough investigation and further details from the relevant authorities surrounding this investigation.Our thoughts and our prayers are with the little girl, her family, along with the countless other victims who have endured such a traumatic experience.

The Torchbearers Youth Association has and will continue to stand up for the rights of children and call upon the government to bring stricter penalties to those who seek to harm our most beautiful and prized possession. We stand resolute with the Free National Movement and Party Leader the Hon. Michael C. Pintard as we call for an end to these heinous acts and the implementation of laws that will seek to bring justice for all of our people.

Let us continue as a nation to pray for our children, educate our children, and most of all protect our children.
