[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Child Care & Protection Agency is continuing its investigations into allegations of sexual abuse against six boys by the manager of the Anjuman Orphanage in New Amsterdam Berbice.

Greene added that the Ministry is also investigating the Orphanage to ensure the children there are in good care and added that they have never received any allegations of misconduct about those running the Orphanage.

When asked if the 13-year-old, who made the claim against the Orphanage’s Manager is mentally unstable, as was indicated by the Manager and owner of the Orphanage, Greene could not confirm or deny but said their investigations will determine all this.

iNews understands that the boy who is claiming sexual abuse has been living there with his sister for the past five years.

The accused, Mohammed Dean was placed on $100,000 station bail and has to report to the New Amsterdam Police Station every Wednesday. Dean said he is cooperating with the police and is on a mission to prove his innocence.
