Senator Dr. Thompson Fontaine says one of the main issues tackled by Team Dominica is the legislation regarding the sexual abuse of the young in our country.
He says the trend of parents encouraging their children into sexual behaviors at a young age for financial benefit, or accepting money in turn for silence of a child’s abuse is worrying.
