Abuse concerns

Ivamere Nataro
Monday, August 18, 2014

THE increase in sexual abuse cases against women and children is a concern for some provisional women candidates who will contest the upcoming election.

Provisional SODELPA candidate Salote Radrodro said her party did not condone such crimes and any government must have programs in place to economically empower women in terms of employment and microfinance business.

Mrs Radrodro said people must work together to reduce the cost of looking after victims and for people to be aware of their roles and responsibilities in society through awareness programs by government, law enforcers and NGOs.

Provisional NFP candidate Priscilla Singh said crime could only be solved if a legally elected government came into power to ensure perpetrators were given maximum penalty.
