Alarming statistics that show that Grenada’s children are under threat have forced the Keith Mitchell administration to take tough action. The issue took centre stage in Parliament this week as Mitchell revealed that 60 per cent of all sexual assault cases before the law courts are related to child sexual abuse. He told legislators that child abuse, like rape, in all forms is an evil scourge that tears at the social fabric of our society and must be stopped now. The Prime Minister announced that Government would establish a special victims unit and enact legislation that would require convicted sex offenders to be registered as part of the efforts to combat increasing child sexual abuse and other forms of sexual violence.
