United Nations and USA describe child rape and sexual abuse as “very serious” in Cabo Verde

Praia, Dec 13 (Inforpress) – U.S. and U.S. State Department Human Rights reports describe the sexual abuse and abuse of children and minors as “very serious” in Cabo Verde and recommend improving action.

This concern was expressed this afternoon to the press by the Resident Coordinator of the United Nations System in Cabo Verde, on the occasion of the Human Rights Day, whose date was haunted by the alleged murder of a minor under 13 years old, in Sal Island.

Ana Patricia Graça said that, despite the progress made in the country, “human rights in Cabo Verde are pinched in a number of areas”, having called for a much more integrated look by all public services and all people in the case of the exploitation and sexual abuse of minors.

He clarified that this recommendation from the United Nations and the U.S. is undergoing improvements in various areas, such as prevention, health, justice and security, and called attention to “no impunity, but speed in these cases of violence, of all crimes, preferably considered serious.”
