Government is now moving ahead with amendments to the Sexual Offences Act, and will soon bring a Bill to Parliament
And Government says it is now moving ahead with amendments to Dominica’s Sexual Offences Act, and will soon bring a Draft Bill to parliament.
Last year government appointed Legal Consultant Ray Harris to look at the provisions of the island’s sexual offences act and make recommendations.
This was done after government cited what they said were inadequacies within the country’s sexual offences act.
Harris told a press conference Monday that a draft amendment bill has already been presented to cabinet for approval, touching several parts of the original act.
Meantime, Harris says the new amendment where rape is concerned is also making provisions for compensation.
