  • 07/02/2019 - (Copyright: WVUK)


    Due to the increasing rate of sexual crimes across the country, the government and its partners have decided to put a high premium on eradicating this menace from society.

    This has seen the courts handing down heavy sentences on those who are found guilty of the various sexual offences.

    One of Sierra Leone's Erudite Barristers-At-Law, Francis Gabbidon, who lectures Human Rights Law at the Fourah Bay College, has written a paper questioning whether the country is really serious to tackle sexual Crimes.

    He has been speaking to Patrick Sallia in this interview.
