By Aaron Humes: The Department of Human Services is intervening in the case of the 11 year old boy who accuses his 16 year old older brother of anally assaulting him in his sleep last Friday.

While Police investigations continue, the Department, after speaking with the boy’s family, is taking charge of his care. We spoke to CEO in the Ministry of Human Development Judith Alpuche this afternoon who said that they have applied for a care order putting the minor in the State’s custody, after speaking with his family.

Charges are expected to be filed now that the minor has spoken to police. We asked the CEO how the recent Section 53 decision will impact such cases for minors; she expected that each case would be treated on its own merits and with the best interest of the victim in mind.

The Prime Minister made mention of the case during this afternoon’s press conference and insisted that the law has not changed in relation to minors.
