Charges likely against NOC staffers implicated in abuse -Crime Chief
Criminal charges are likely to be laid against four staff members of the New Opportunity Corps (NOC) at the centre of physical and sexual abuse allegations made by four girls who were removed from the institution by the Child Care & Protection Agency (CC&PA).
Crime Chief Leslie James has told Stabroek News that there is a “high likelihood” that charges will be laid against the four persons, one of whom is employed on a part-time basis.
According to James, two of the staff members were questioned on Monday and another two were questioned yesterday and they have all denied the allegations. The case file is expected to be completed shortly and sent to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for advice on charges.
