P.U.P. Condemns Violation to Women & Cyber-bullying

The People’s United Party is condemning the brutal murder of an elderly woman in what should have been the safety of her own home in Sandhill last week Tuesday. Ofelia Hernandez Cruz was beaten to her head with a hammer. The P.U.P. notes that two other elderly persons have also been murdered in the Cayo District.  The party points to a breakdown in the social fabric, citing a recent case of rape in which a leaked copy of the victim’s statement was shared via WhatsApp from within the Police Department, further perpetuating cyber-attacks against her.  The United Women Groups calls on the Commissioner of Police to be open and transparent with a proper investigation on who violated the privacy of the victim by sharing the document.  The U.W.G. calls on the Attorney General to enact cyber-bullying legislation before the end of 2019.  The Special Envoy and all other organizations working on women’s rights and issues are encouraged to demand justice and to continue to fight for the safety and protection of women and children who remain vulnerable to death, violence, discrimination and cyber-bullying.
