St. George’s, Grenada November 22nd, 2011: The Women’s Arm of the NNP lends its voice in strengthening the call for stiffer penalties, to be applied to sexual offenders. This call comes on the heel of an incident on the Island of Carriacou; where a man from Grenada, was charged for robbing and raping a 60yr old non-national female, residing in Carriacou.

According Ms. Janis Lessey-Cuffie, President of the Women’s Arm; “the time has come for Women to lead the change process and it warms my heart to see women coming out in their numbers to picket the court house it Carriacou. It tells me that women are more aware and would not be silenced any longer. The message must is very clear; violence against women would not be tolerated in Grenada Carriacou and Petite Martinique”

The women of the NNP deeply sympathize with the family and friends of the victim, over this unfortunate incident and hope that justice is served in the matter.
