No sex abuse allegations made against NOC staff
– girls detail physical, psychological harm
The four girls who were removed from the New Opportunity Corps (NOC) following a High Court order, to facilitate an investigation into abuse allegations, have not made any allegations of sexual abuse against any officer working at the facility but have complained about being physically abused, according to sources.
Stabroek News understands that while the four girls have not yet completed their statements to the police and child care workers they have not so far made any reports of being sexually abused by officials at institution. However, they have made such claims against their male peers, following their escape on March 22 from the facility. The girls’ mothers had recounted to this newspaper that the boys had demanded sex from the girls in return for the food they would have taken for them while they were hiding behind the institution.
