Sexual abuse of young on increase in Fiji

The increasing number of sexual abuse cases against children is proving problematic for the Navolau district in Fiji.

Sexual abuse against children had increased dramatically in the past two years according to Police spokesman, Seargeant Koro Lesikimacoku, who urged the council members to help the police in fighting this crime.

“It’s unfortunate that grandfathers, fathers and uncles are involved in most child and sexual abuse cases, … the ones that are expected to be trusted to protect their young ones.” he said.

Sgt Lesikimacoku said police needed the support of the society.
