Local Pastor, Randy Rodney, says they have not received an acknowledgement/response to a letter written to PM Roosevelt Skerrit on the issue of increasing child abuse here and guidelines moving forward.
The letter, written by the Coalition of Pastors and Church leaders, spoke to compromising church leaders and the seeming partiality of the justice system here. They therefore called on all leaders to approach their responsibility with utmost importance and for archaic laws to be reviewed.
The letter, signed by 23 pastors and church leaders here, also called for public officials convicted of sexual offenses to be banned from public office at least for a term and for the establishment a family court and a sexual offences registry.
