Cops, child care agency probing NOC abuse reports
- alleged victims put in protective custody after court orders removal
The Child Care & Protection Agency (CC&PA) and the police have launched an investigation into reports of sexual and physical abuse committed on inmates at the New Opportunity Corps (NOC) at Onderneeming, following a court order late Friday night which instructed that four alleged victims be removed from the facility.
Head of the CC&PA Ann Greene yesterday told Stabroek News that the juveniles had to be removed from the facility for the investigation to be conducted. She explained that because the children were placed at NOC by a court decision, they could not just be removed without the intervention of the court.
