East New Britain urged to address sex crimes

A COMMUNITY leader has described East New Britain as a “sick society” with the prevalence of sexual crimes against minors and incest cases, The National reports.
He called on all East New Britain leaders, including Governor Leo Dion, to start clamping down on sexual crimes.
The community leader claimed to be a relative of a victim who was raped and sexually assaulted by a 60-year-old man who has since been sentenced by the Kokopo National Court to 21 years in jail.
He asked that his name be withheld to protect the identity of the victim.
He said leaders of East New Britain had been very quiet about the increasing number of incest and sexual crimes.
“East New Britain is a sick society where sexual crimes, including incest, have been allowed to go out of hand,” he said.
He said police should fast-track complaints against leaders which had been gathering dust in police offices. He said leaders seemed to be above the law.
“There is one law for everyone and leaders are not above the law,” the leader from Taubar said.
