Minister of Justice Delroy Chuck is urging Jamaicans to encourage family members, among others, who are being abused, to seek assistance from the Ministry’s Victim Services Division (VSD) offices islandwide.
“The thousands of domestic and other abuses… that occur daily… in our homes across Jamaica must stop. It is not fair to our children, to our women and families. Our women are suffering in silence, and we ask those who know of family members who are abused to encourage them to come to Victim Services. We have a Victim Services office in every parish,” the Minister implored.
Minister Chuck was speaking during the Legal Aid Council (LAC) justice fair, held at the Harmony Beach Park in Montego Bay, St James, last Friday.
Chuck used the opportunity to encourage citizens to take advantage of the wide-ranging justice services available islandwide.
