Men Warned Against Bad Sexual Habit
In an effort to pursue an alleged sexual scandal reported to a magisterial court in Montserrado County, well-placed legal sources confided in this paper that laws are crafted to protect women and children, not men.
Other than the laws on books, the sources in a lengthy conversation (on condition of anonymity) with our reporter cited the construction of Women and Children Protection Section (WACPS) offices at every Police Station throughout the Republic of Liberia, including the Liberia National Police Central Headquarters on Capitol Hill in Monrovia to protect women and children.
The issue surfaced as a result of a recent complaint by a lady (name withheld) who claimed that a man attempted raping her while taking her shower outside at night. She is reported to have alarmed to her neighbors for rescue. Reports quoted the lady as narrating that the suspect attempted penetrating her from her back while bending over the bucket.
However, the suspect was not under court custody to deny or admit the claims, but the necessary legal mechanism or writ of arrest was being processed to have him answer to the allegation in court.
During his interaction with this paper at the Temple of Justice on Capitol Hill in Monrovia, the senior legal practitioner warned men at all levels to control their sexual habit or be lured into rape, attempted rape or misdirected pregnancy by such uncontrollable sexual habit.
He further noted that in a situation wherein a woman with five different sexual partners pursues a legal action against the wealthiest of such partners for pregnancy not his, the law will be pleaded in her favor to compel the accused to support the pregnancy.
Our legal source noted the difficulties in disproven rape or attempted rape cases instituted against men, considering all of the current legal protection for women.
