New laws to implement harsher punishments against child abuse are in the making in Dominica. That’s the word from Minister for Social Services, Family & Gender Affairs Catherine Daniel. Daniel made these remarks at the launch of a book on Child Abuse on Wednesday. She says legislation to introduce harsher penalties to persons found guilty of child abuse is being drafted.
Meantime, Daniel says heartless, selfish and sick predators prey on vulnerable children to satisfy their lust, egos and pervasion.
And Daniel says these people need to be completely wiped out from society.
