Apr 22, 2009 News Comments Off on Homosexual, teen lover to face buggery charges
The Director of Public Prosecutions has recommended that a homosexual male and 15-year-old boy be charged with buggery.
The two were arrested on March 29, last, when police raided a house at Victoria, East Coast Demerara.
A source close to the investigations told this newspaper that the fact that they both admitted to engaging in sexual activities was what swayed the decision to institute the charge.
This newspaper understands that the homosexual male and his 16-year-old lover both underwent medical examinations.
Initially, it was reported that the teen had run away from home and was being held against his will.
However, the police investigations into the matter had revealed that on February 22, the 15-year-old was sent on an errand by his mother to Leopold Street in Georgetown.
After not seeing him return, she made a missing person report to the police the following day and ranks subsequently located him at a house at Victoria.
The police confirmed that a homosexual and his niece who were in the house at the time were arrested.
The teenager is known to have been associating with homosexual males and did their biddings for a fee.
Further investigations by the police revealed that the teenaged boy had traveled to Suriname and returned to Guyana on March 11, when he met the homosexual at the Stabroek Market area.
He was subsequently invited to the homosexual’s house at Victoria where he went of his own free will and was reportedly not abducted and was free to come and go as he pleased.
It was also revealed that the teenaged boy was not sexually molested but had engaged in anal sex with the homosexual as mutually agreed.
Several persons had chided the police for initially treating the matter with some indifference, claiming that there should be nothing mutual about an illegal act.
Villagers had observed the strange boy at the home but disregarded his presence since they thought that he was a relative or a willing occupant of the house.
However, rumours circulated that the child was being held against his will and may be sexually abused by the males in the house.
This was after the mother of the child contacted villagers after learning her son’s whereabouts.
The duo is expected to appear in court soon.
