Teenage pregnancy[www.inewsguyana.com] – Director of the Child Care and Protection Agency (CCPA), Ann Greene has confirmed that the 12 – year – old pregnant child has been removed from the Georgetown Public Hospital and is now in protective care.

During an interview with iNews, Greene explained that the child was removed from the health facility since she is not fully ready to give birth but  is being closely monitored.

On Tuesday, the CCPA handed over the stepfather of the child to the police, after he is accused of impregnating her.

Greene said the department is already making provisions to ensure that the child receives the best care and necessary attention required especially at this stage in her life.

The young lady was reportedly raped by her stepfather earlier this year and according to information received, the mother of the child has been trying to cover up the matter.

The mother also allegedly attempted to pin the pregnancy on a young man from Lethem. Police sources indicated that the child is already changing her story of how she became pregnant.

The matter is under active investigation by both the CCPA and the Guyana Police Force.
