The 17 year-old girl who claims that she was sexually assaulted by a female Police Officer at the Ogle Airport on February 25, 2018 says that no one has made contact with her directly or reached out to her following the unfortunate incident.
It was reported that the teen, who was on her way to visit relatives, was allegedly subjected to a “strip search” by officers at the airport, before being placed in a room where a female officer allegedly inserted her finger in the girl’s private parts. The law enforcement rank had reportedly asked the teen to “spread out and cough”.
The young woman, who is still on a visit to Barbados, spoke with Inews on Tuesday when she broke her silence on the matter. She maintained then that she was assaulted by the female officer as she pleaded with those who are likely to investigate the matter to ensure that justice is served.
“Nobody contacted me so far, not even to say whether they are investigating the matter or anything, I’m so humiliated about this and I hope that no other teenager has to go through this kind of trauma”, she remarked.
Her statement comes on the heels of several other pronouncements on the matter from the Police, Social Protection Ministry officials and other officials following the incident.
The teenager is still traumatized after the ordeal and revealed that her family was still actively receiving legal advice on the way forward in the matter.
Meanwhile, the female officer at the centre of the alleged issue has since denied committing the act. An investigation into the matter has since been launched by the GPF’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR).
