Sup­port for Zan­doli Sex Of­fender Registry

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Dear Sir,

I am the trea­surer and co­founder of the JRW foun­da­tion, an NGO in­cor­po­rated in Trinidad and Tobago ded­i­cated to Dur­ban youth de­vel­op­ment. I write in sup­port of the work Zan­doli In­ter­na­tional is do­ing to es­tab­lish a Sex Of­fender’s Registry in St. Lu­cia. This is a cru­cial step in the fight against sex crimes and in light of the pass­ing of the In­ter­na­tional Megan’s Law (deal­ing with child­sex of­fend­ers) by the United States of Amer­ica ear­lier this year sex of­fender reg­is­tra­tion will inevitably be in­tro­duced to the Caribbean. Both Trinidad and Tobago and Ja­maica al­ready have laws deal­ing with sex of­fender reg­istries. How­ever th­ese are not pub­licly avail­able reg­istries. Even so, Saint Lu­cia and the rest of the Caribbean have no rea­son to lag be­hind the rest of the world when it comes to deal­ing with sex crimes. The JRW Foun­da­tion lends its fullest sup­port to Zan­doli In­ter­na­tional in this en­deavor.

- Re­gards, Jonathan Bha­gan, Trea­surer and Co-Founder JRW Foun­da­tion
