Screen_Shot_2015-04-20_at_8.07.53_PMAt the top of the newscast we told you about the pastor from the Roca de Poder Evangelical Church in Trial Farm who has been charged for Child Pornography and at the heels of that charge, today the National Committee for Families and Children issued a release which out rightly condemned the abuse of any kind against children. The statement says and we quote, “One of the obligations to our children is to protect them from all forms of exploitation, abuse and neglect.  Article 19 of the Rights of a Child states that, “Children should be protected from being hurt and mistreated in body or mind”.  The release continued stating that “Too often in the past, criminal acts against children have gone unpunished.  However, perpetrators should bear in mind that whenever children are abused or seriously harmed, there will be severe penal repercussions. A zero tolerance approach against child abuse of any kind must be the stance throughout the length and breadth of Belize”, end quote. The release ended that we all have a part to pay in providing a safe and healthy environment to our future leaders and to commit to creating spaces where children can know they are nurtured and protected. It’s our collective responsibility to make Belize worthy of its children.” End quote.
