Several days after a 16-year-old girl of Number 59 Village Corentyne, Berbice alleged that her parents are prostituting her; the child protection office in Berbice has said that it is unable to locate the teenager.
A source from the office told Kaieteur News yesterday that efforts made to contact the teen were unsuccessful since there is no information pertaining to where the girl lives.
According to the source, police at the No 51 police station had not given them any information relating to the whereabouts of the abused teenager. Upon contacting the number 51 police station, this newspaper was told that the officer assigned to the matter was out.
On Wednesday last, a 16-year-old girl attracted the attention of the media when she reportedly claimed that her parents were prostituting her. The teen reportedly said that her parents would allow a male visitor to sexually harass her for money.
“The boy does drunk me daddy and give me mommy money and dem does allow he to spend time with me in dem house” teen said.
Ann Greene, Director of Child Services at the Ministry of Human Services said, yesterday, that the matter is currently under investigation so she is unable to comment on the issue at the moment.
However, there may be mischief afoot. When the Department of Probation contacted the teen, she denied being prostituted.
A medical examination suggested that the teen was non virgo intacto but that she had not been sexually involved for some time. “There was no recent trauma,” a doctor said to the probation officials.
A woman who lives in Schenectady, New York, and who claimed to have married the man identified as the individual engaging in intercourse with the teen, said that she is prepared to expose the teen’s mother and her husband whom she said abused her and who is seeking a divorce.
The wedding occurred in December 2010 after the woman travelled from overseas. There are also reports that members of the teen’s household are afraid to answer the telephone because of the nuisance calls from people, some purporting to be the ‘prostituted’ teen.
