GDF soldiers allegedly rape 15-year old girl at army base

A 15-year old girl was allegedly raped by three soldiers of the Guyana Defence Force on Saturday at one of the country’s military bases, police confirmed.

The GDF late Monday night said it was aware of the allegation against three of its ranks and has convened a Board of Inquiry to “ascertain the facts and to determine whether the crime was committed.”

Meanwhile, the army said the ranks are assisting police with their investigations . “The GDF remains committed to the preservation of law and order and will deal condignly with all transgressors,” the army said.

Investigators said the incident occurred at Camp Stephenson Saturday night ( January 28, 2017). Police said they were yet to identify the perpetrators.

“She was taken to the base in one of the army vehicles and taken to the barrack room where she was sexually assaulted,” a senior police officer told Demerara Waves Online News.

Investigators were told after the soldiers were finished, the teenager was out off the army base. A medical examination, police said, has since confirmed that she was sexually assaulted.

“There is evidence that something happened,” police said.

    If this is investigated and found out to be true they should be castrated and jailed for life.

    It would appear that she willingly went to the army bse in a military vehicle. However this does not justify the fact that the was raped. From the Police to the Miltary, who can you trust.

      she is a minor..

      Base on whose investigation, it would appear that she willingly went? Her being in the vehicle doesn’t mean that the soldiers told her that she was going to the base….. They could have driven pass their agreed drop off point.

    Youth women beware. The ‘backball’ which is still popular after more than 25 years, which has the endorsement of a former commander-in-chief and which has been taken over and re-branded by the Americans, sends a message that you are there for the taking, especially if you do it with multiple dance partners in one party. Just a thought. I am not saying that it was a factor in this case.
    Also a lot of ‘backballing’ men think that it is OK for other women but not for females to whom they are related or connected.Just another thought.
    Nothing justifies rape, but it makes no sense tempting fate.
    My heart goes out to the young lady and I hope that she receives justice.
