A few years ago I attended a seminar at the Le Meridien Hotel in relation to the rights of the child. The First Lady was a leading figure in the proceedings.
I learnt there that in Guyana the age of consent for sexual involvement is thirteen years. Did I receive wrong information?
If not, what is the outcry about a current matter involving a thirteen-year-old and an adult? Both persons involved appear to be operating within their constitutional rights.
God help Guyana!
