‘Stamp it out’ consultations a wise move
Guyana Chronicle – November 14, 2007
I am writing in the light of the present countrywide consultation on the sexual violence Paper ‘Stamp it out’. This is a bold move by the Government to minimise sexual violence in our society, provide support for victims and prosecute offenders.
I have been following the news and I am happy to see that the Paper is being consolidated among the public so that persons in the society themselves can lend a voice to amend the laws.
Indeed, as a young girl I am thankful for this intervention because sexual violence is prevalent among young children both male and female and the law does not allow offenders to be prosecuted for the dreadful crimes they committed.
I am in full support of this Consultation Paper and I hope others recognise the urgent attention that is needed to help our society move forward.
