(mylbsonline/Liberia)-The Liberia Council of Churches (LCC) has condemned the alleged immoral and inhumane action of a Lebanese national, charged with statutory rape.

Jaafar Bashir is also being accused by State Security for endangering children’s welfare.

The LCC wants the Justice Ministry ensure justice for the affected children and their families innocently abused by Mr. Bashir.

The Liberia Council of Churches is also calling on the ministries of Gender, Health and Social Welfare, UN and other related agencies to ensure the physical and psychological care to enable the children recover.

Meanwhile, the LCC has expressed its support to the Gender Ministry’s anti-rape campaign to ensure a secured future for children in Liberia.
