[www.inewsguyana.com] – The 18 – year – old male who accused ten men including his friend of drugging and gang raping him on Old Year’s Night (December 31, 2014) is slowly regaining consciousness, according to his mother.
The teen was unconscious for almost seven days after the ordeal, which has left him bed stricken at the Georgetown Public Hospital.
During a visit to the hospital on Tuesday, January 14, the teenager’s mother told iNews that she was informed by doctors that her son was raped repeatedly and that he is now traumatized and in a state of shock.
She said the teen was able to tell them what the men did to him before he lost consciousness. The teen still remains in a critical condition and is unable to speak. His mother also told iNews that yesterday morning her son opened his eyes and attempted to speak but was unable to do so.
She said that doctors there were reluctant to examine him and only did so when she insisted. She said that her son met the prime suspect in the alleged gang rape at a supermarket where the two worked. The suspect was in police custody but was released on bail.
The frustrated mother said that her son also implicated the Uncle of the friend and according her, after the boys raped him, the uncle threw her son out of the house and threatened to shoot him.
The mother said her heart breaks for her son and is praying that he comes out if this situation alive. She also expressed concerns about the type of life her son will live given the fact that he is already being discriminated.
The woman also noted that she was told that the police are unable to take action against the accusers since her son is unable to give a statement. The mother is outraged at this and noted that the medical report shows that her son was repeatedly raped. The woman said she is being pushed around by the police who seem not to care.
She is hoping the police would become more active and work to ensure her son receives justice. She described her son as hard working, jovial and loving.
The woman also denied claims that her son is mentally challenged, but admitted that he has a physical disability; however she maintains that he is mentally stable.
