Mindelo, Jul 24 (Inforpress) – A group of theater artists in Mindelo intends to perform, this Saturday, a performance to ask the authorities to intervene in cases of violence and child sexual abuse, which have already become frequent.
The information was gave to Inforpress by the actress Janaína Alves, who promotes the initiative together with the actor João Branco.
According to the same source, the objective is to take to the streets of the city of Mindelo, around noon this Saturday, 25th, and perform a performance in order to ask the country’s authorities for “greater attention” for the increase of punishments in cases of violence and child sexual abuse in Cabo Verde.
“We can no longer remain silent on this matter. Once again we are faced with a hideous case that happened in Santo Antão with a child under 12, with frequent abuse, and knowing that the accused are under Statement of Identity and Residence (TIR) waiting for a trial without knowing when and how it will happen”, it defended.
