PM sends warning to child molesters

KINGSTON, St. Vincent, CMC – The Jamaica government is contemplating stronger measures to deal with child molesters in the wake of several criminal attacks on children.
“I say to those of you who believe that you can just be worthless and prey on the little children, stop it (because) I have spoken to the minister of justice that we should craft legislation so that DNA can prove a rape or molestation so that no one can go free when they molest our children,” Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller told delegates attending the ruling People's National Party's (PNP) 75th annual conference on Sunday.
“We cannot allow our children to be abused and at times murdered by these cruel, evil and wicked people,” she told the delegates, making reference to the recent case of a 15-year-old girl, who was raped and then viciously chopped by her father.
