Over 7,000 Jamaican children sexually abused in last four years

first_imgKNIGHT… most of the mothers who I interview know the children are being abused At least 7,245 Jamaican children are reported to have been sexually assaulted over the last four years, according to complaints received by the Office of the Children’s Registry (OCR).At the same time, OCR officials say that Jamaica’s “informer fi dead” culture is preventing even more people from reporting the dastardly acts.While it is not clear if more children are becoming victims of sexual abuse, statistics from the OCR have shown a massive spike in the number of reports received, with the figure jumping from 121 reported cases in 2007 to 2,652 as of last year.There is however no system in place as yet at the registry to determine how many of these reported cases have been prosecuted.But despite these high numbers, it took the voice of a frustrated and traumatised medical practitioner to shine the spotlight on the plight of these children and to evoke public outrage.A number of state agencies which deal with children’s issues have since called on Jamaicans to break their silence.The Child Development Agency (CDA), Office of the Children’s Advocate (OCA), Office of the Children’s Registry (OCR) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) yesterday issued a joint statement as a result of this week’s Sunday Observer lead story in which Dr Sandra Knight highlighted the plight of Jamaican children who have been raped and in some cases infected with sexually transmitted diseases.In response to the article, which has generated much public outrage, concern and offers of help, the agencies said Jamaicans need to break the silence on this “intolerable violation of children’s rights”.The agencies lauded Dr Knight for being outspoken on the issue in the media.“Sexual abuse is one of the most heinous forms of violence against children, which no child should ever have to endure,” the statement said.The State bodies said the alarming news that greeted the public on Sunday has been a major concern of theirs for many years.“Our agencies have each been working with a range of partners over many years to address this issue, through programmes, policies and laws that seek to prevent abuse and to provide treatment and care for young victims,” the agencies said.Noting that sexual abuse is a complex issue, the agencies admit that their work on the ground and at the policy level is not enough.“All Jamaicans, including professionals who work with children, parents, caregivers, the media and the public must assume their responsibility to protect the nation’s children,” the agencies said, adding that “breaking the silence is critical”.On Tuesday, Greig Smith, registrar of the OCR, and his colleague public education specialist Trevesa Dasilva Ashman both agreed that the “informer fi dead’ culture, which has kept Jamaicans silent on so many issues, has resulted in a lot more persons not speaking up about sexual abuse of the nation’s children.Smith told the Jamaica Observer that prior to the establishment of the registry there were concerns by the public as to where they could report these cases without their identities being revealed.“Persons may say if I go to the police or any other agency, by [the] time I reach back the community it is being said that I made a report,” he explained.However, because of the OCR’s confidentiality clause, the identity of the reporter is never revealed.As such, persons can call the registry at 1-888-776-8328 between 7:00 am and 11:00 pm to report any suspected case of child abuse; whether it is neglect, child labour, trafficking, physical, emotional or sexual.Smith explained that the information is assessed and recorded, following which a report is prepared and forwarded to the CDA, the OCA and the Centre for Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse for investigation and/or intervention.Dasilva Ashman said while persons making the report do not have to give their names, they are strongly encouraged to do so in the event the matter reaches the court, as the law states that if someone suspects child abuse and does not report it they can be charged or imprisoned.“We had a case of a mother who knew her child was being sexually abused by the boyfriend and did not report it and the case was brought before the courts and the OCR was subpoenaed to go to court to testify if the mother had made the report. We got the report, but it was not made by the mother, but someone else, and she has been imprisoned since for failure to report,” she explained.Majority of the reports to the OCR are from ‘prescribed’ persons, according to Dasilva Ashman. These are persons such as doctors, teachers guidance counsellors social workers, etc who, by virtue of their occupation, care for children.“One of the things we do in communication activities is to target these prescribed persons because we realise they are in a strategic position to be able to identify when a child is being abused and be able to report it,” she said.Jamaica Observer Share Sharing is caring!

Messi nets right-footed rocket as first Barca goal under Koeman

first_img Messi would score a second five minutes after the break after his left-footed strike from range took a deflection on the way in, and that would be the final goal in a 3-1 win for Barca. Barcelona’s first goal was scored by Philippe Coutinho, who finished off a lovely team move that was sparked by Messi’s delicious through ball. Lionel Messi did not take long to get back among the goals with Barcelona, scoring a right-footed beauty in Wednesday’s friendly against Girona before later adding a second. Messi was making his second appearance for Barcelona since he reversed his decision to leave the club and announced he would be staying with the Catalans. Rather than fight it out in court the 33-year-old will stay at Barcelona, though his future is far from clear with his contract set to expire at the end of the upcoming campaign. Coutinho is another player whose Barcelona future is in doubt after the Brazilian returned to the club from a season-long loan at Bayern Munich. The Bavarians turned down the chance to sign Coutinho on a permanent basis and the 28-year-old could be set to stay with Barca after he appeared likely to be sold earlier in the summer. Coutinho’s agent, Kia Joorabchian, recently ruled out a return to the Premier League for his client, who had been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea and Arsenal. The strain of his off-field issues looked to have no effect on Messi on the pitch though, as he slammed home a shot from distance off the post to give his side a 2-0 lead just before half-time. It was his first goal under new head coach Ronald Koeman. In an exclusive interview with Goal, Messi said he preferred to stay for the 2020-21 season rather than become embroiled in a messy legal battle over a termination clause he looked to activate in his contract. While Messi and his legal team asserted the right to activate the clause at season’s end in August, Barcelona insisted that he had to inform them of his desire to leave in June — when the season was originally scheduled to end before the coronavirus break pushed it back.

Former Marine arrested after lying at PBIA security checkpoints

first_imgA former US Marine has been arrested after he lied his way past two Secret Service checkpoints at Palm Beach International Airport.The incident occurred Saturday while President Donald Trump prepared to leave the airport en route to Washington.According to the report, Brandon Mark Magnan and a male passenger drove up to the checkpoint on Southern Boulevard and Kirk Road and identified himself as security for the president’s Marine One helicopter. Magnan then presented a case with the words ” law enforcement officer” on it and his identification that had the seals of the Marine Corps and the Marine Corps Security Flight Detachment.Security at the first checkpoint then allowed him to go through to the second checkpoint.At a second checkpoint, Magnan again identified himself as security for the president and showed his identification. Again, Magnan was allowed through.Shortly after Magnan got through the second checkpoint, he was approached by a PBSO deputy who was concerned that Magnan was not dressed in a Marine Corps uniform, “as is common practice during active presidential travel.”The deputy asked for Magnan’s identification and then contacted members of the Marine One security team. The service members then told the deputy that Magnan’s identification was counterfeit.Authorities further questioned Magnan about his identification and that’s when he told them that he was a retired Marine One Security officer.Secret Service then ran a background check on Magnan, which revealed that he had been dishonorably discharged from the military in 2010 “following his conviction at Court Martial for serious offenses.”When confronted with this information, Magnan admitted that he had been dishonorably discharged from the military and that he was not a Marine One officer.He was arrested for false impersonation of an officer or an employee of the United States.  As of Monday, he was bonded out of jail.last_img read more

Qatar stadiums look amazing for 2022 World Cup: Jung Wooyoung

first_imgDOHA: South Korean footballer Jung Wooyoung stated that 2022 World Cup stadiums in Qatar look in top shape. Jung started his professional experience overseas, playing for clubs in Japan and China PR from 2011 to 2018 before joining Al Sadd of Qatar, where he is in his second season.Having spent two years in the country that will host the next edition of the global showpiece, he is already well adapted to life in the Gulf. “I never thought I’d love life here,” he told FIFA.com “Everyone is friendly and that has helped me adapt to this new lifestyle. In fact, I was delighted to find some Korean restaurants in Qatar. That said, I still share traditional Qatari meals with club-mates when we have our training camps. I love eating lamb,” he said. With two of the eight Qatar 2022 stadiums already opened, Jung has had the chance to play in both of them. “It’s wonderful to drive by the stadiums. Right away you feel a desire to play in them. We had several games at the Khalifa International Stadium and Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah. It’s amazing. I can imagine how the players who will be coming to the World Cup in two years’ time are going to feel. I hope I’ll be in top form then so that I can keep my spot in the national team and take part in this big tournament.” Jung has helped Al Sadd to win the Qatar Stars League, the Sheikh Jassim (Super) Cup and the Qatar Cup. The AFC Champions League, however, remains the team’s ultimate goal. “Unfortunately, luck hasn’t been on our side at continental level. We exited at the semi-final stage in the last two editions, but we aim to go all the way and lift the trophy. I think our chances improved when it was confirmed that we’ll play our remaining games in Doha and won’t have to travel. We’re determined to get back to winning things.” Having shared the dressing room at Al Sadd with Spanish legend Xavi Hernandez, who is now the team’s head coach, Jung considers himself lucky. “I remember I used to watch him when he played at the 2002 World Cup. I continued to watch him as one of the stars of Barcelona and Spain. He had a fantastic career. It was great playing alongside him at Al Sadd, where we learned a lot from him. He is a great person and has a bright future as a coach.” IANS Also Watch: CHECK OUT: Likham: The Book Made of Goldlast_img read more

Ten years after national championship SU retires Carmelo Anthony’s jersey at halftime of Georgetown game

first_imgWith his right hand on the frame that contained his jersey and his left hand gripping a microphone before an audience that dared not look away, Carmelo Anthony’s voice quivered.For a moment he got choked up, unable to process the honor being bestowed upon him.“This is one of the most memorable days of my life,” Anthony said, “of my career.”Standing on a stage at the center of Jim Boeheim Court, Anthony became the 10th Syracuse athlete to have his jersey retired. He watched as his iconic No. 15 was raised to the rafters at halftime of a record-breaking game, with several of his 2003 teammates alongside him. The current New York Knicks star, whose name graces the basketball practice facility that aided the program’s rise to an elite level, was humbled by the honor that placed him in the company of Dave Bing, Derrick Coleman, Sherman Douglas, Dwayne “Pearl” Washington and several other Syracuse legends.Though he spent but a single season in an Orange uniform, Anthony left and indelible mark on the basketball program and the university. He guided Syracuse to its only national championship in 2003, leading the team in scoring (22.2 points per game) and rebounding (10.0 rebounds per game) while being named first-team All-American.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHe told the crowd he never thought he would come here, saying it was too cold in Syracuse. But the very next day Jim Boeheim was waiting on his front step, and after that he realized that “real men wear orange.”After his one memorable year in Syracuse, Anthony ascended to the top of the NBA after Denver drafted him with the third overall pick, establishing himself as one of the most talented scorers in the league. It earned him the opportunity to play a leading role on two gold medal teams (2008 and 2012) for which Boeheim, his former coach, served as an assistant under Mike Krzyzewski.Anthony furthered his connection to Syracuse with a $3 million donation toward the construction of the Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center. It features two full-size basketball courts, a weight room, training room, several classrooms and offices for both the men’s and women’s basketball teams.Boeheim has said on multiple occasions that the program would never have reached an elite level were it not for the practice facility. It is a tool he and his staff make the most of in recruiting and everyday workouts.And to have his jersey retired on this day, the one that broke the on-campus attendance record and against Syracuse’s archrival, made it a moment Anthony said he will never forget. At the podium in the media work room he choked up once more, reflecting on a community that embraced him and made him one of their own.He never thought this day was possible as a teenager back in 2002-03, and the realness of the moment overwhelmed him. Two gold medals and a national title still did not prepare him for Saturday’s emotion.Said Anthony: “This is a day I will never forget.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Related Stories HOME TO THE HOYA: Otto Porter silences record crowd in final SU-Georgetown Big East Dome gameUnrivaled stars: All-time lineup of Syracuse-Georgetown rivalryIseman: Despite Syracuse’s move to ACC, rivalry with Georgetown should continueParting shots: The Daily Orange’s preview of Syracuse and Georgetown’s final Dome meeting as Big East rivalsBoiling over: Decades of controversy, heated battles define storied rivalry between Syracuse and Georgetowncenter_img Published on February 23, 2013 at 5:24 pm Contact Michael: [email protected] | @Michael_Cohen13last_img read more
