SANTA ELENA, Cayo District, Mon. Aug. 15, 2016–Two days after the Chief Justice Kenneth Benjamin delivered a historic ruling making it clear that sexual intercourse between two consenting adults should not be criminalised, an 11-year-old boy was reportedly sodomized by one of his older brothers.
According to Santa Elena police, sometime after 3 a.m. on Friday, the 11-year-old woke up in his bedroom and found that his 16-year-old brother was anally penetrating him.
This horrific incident became public after controversial media personality, Pastor Louis Wade, spoke of it on his popular Rise and Shine morning show on Plus TV this morning.
Wade posted on Facebook that after the accused brother had completed his act of sodomy, he allegedly told his brother, “nothing will happen to me because this is now legal.”
After allegedly being pushed around by Santa Elena and San Ignacio police, the minor and his eldest brother sought assistance in Belmopan, where Pastor Wade took them to the hospital, and a medical doctor confirmed that the boy had been sexually violated.
Belmopan police were later called to the hospital at around 5:30 p.m., when an official report was made.
When Amandala contacted San Ignacio police, they stated that they should be in possession of the case files by tomorrow, Tuesday, and would thereafter determine the charges against the accused brother.
