Date: 2017-08-20

The Children’s Authority of Trinidad and Tobago assures the public that it is working with the Police in the conduct of the investigations into the brutal beating of a child. The matter was brought to the Authority’s attention when the child was admitted to Hospital.

The Authority is horrified and strongly condemns the actions of those responsible for the brutal abuse of the child. The organisation is once again reminding the public that preventing child abuse is everyone’s responsibility. In fact, if you see, hear or are suspicious about the treatment of a child in your family or neighbourhood you should immediately make a report to the Police or the Children’s Authority.

The Authority is calling on anyone with information about this incident to make a report to the Police at 999 or to the Children’s Authority Hotline at 996 or 800-2014.
