We don’t compromise rape cases
The Gender Coordinator for the Ministry of Gender, Children, and Social Protection in Montserrado County, Mr. Benedict Nyae, says there would be no compromise with rape suspects.
Addressing reporters at his office in Bentol, Montserrado County recently, the Gender Coordinator confirmed that his office had transferred several rape cases to court for adjudication.
He said apart from transferring rape cases, he has also transferred crimes involving violence against women as well as investigating cases of non-persistent support between couples.
Mr. Nyae, who is also Chairman of the Agenda for Transformation and Rule of Law in Bentol, said he had had series of conferences with citizens of the area involved in disputes.
He said the Gender Ministry has provided logistics, including computers and motorbikes to facilitate his hob.
Nyae who has been serving as Gender Coordinator since 2004, revealed that his office has been able to reduce domestic violence in the area through sensitization and awareness campaign throughout Bentol City, educating residents to stop rape, domestic violence and non-persistent support.
He expressed gratitude to other branches of government in the area for cordial working relationship that exists amongst them, and admonished citizens not to compromise rape cases, stressing that anyone found in such behavior would be prosecuted in keeping with law.
