Action Aid Bong County Advisory Project Chairperson Joseph Urey has proffered the institution of rigid punishment against perpetrators of violence against women and girls in Liberia.

According to Urey, the institution of rigid punishment against perpetrators of violence against women and girls is vital to eradicating violence.Speaking during the official launch of the sixteen days of atavism in Gbarnga, Urey says violence against women and girls across Liberia has sky-rocket as a result of the relaxation of the Sexual and Gender – based Violence law in Liberia.Urey further recommends the categorization of sexual and gender – based violence as a non-billable as a mean of ensuring violators duly account for the actions in a court of competence jurisdiction.

He further admonishes parents to refrain from handling SGBVs with specific emphasis to rape, if the culture of impunity most be minimized.Also speaking, a volunteer of Action Aid in Bong County Winston Varwulu calls on men to resist all forms of violence against women and girls and see them as partners for progress.Varwulu says the International Convention on Human Rights, Women and Children Rights prohibits all form of valance against women and girls in all of its member states.By Joseph Titus yekeryan in Bong—Edited by Winston W.
