No report of NOC abuse was made to police – Crime Chief
Crime Chief Leslie James yesterday said that no formal report was made to the Guyana Police Force about the allegations of sexual and physical abuse reportedly committed on inmates of the New Opportunity Corps (NOC) at the facility.
“Nothing formal has been said to us,” James told Stabroek News yesterday when contacted on the issue. However, James did reveal that the police would soon speak with the four girls who were recently removed from the institution by the Child Care and Protection Agency (CC&PA).
Two Fridays ago, the CC&PA was granted permission via a court order to remove the four girls from the facility and they are now in protective custody.
