By BBN Staff: Special Envoy for Women and Children, Kim Simplis Barrow, issued a statement today expressing concern over the most recent high-profile report of gender-based violence involving Nicole Usher, her infant child and Kenzle Hulse, son of Minister Godwin Hulse, who was charged yesterday for the incident.

“This case serves to demonstrate the pervasive nature of gender-based violence in Belize and the fact that both victims and perpetrators come from all echelons of our society,” the statement said.

The Special Envoy says that this incident highlights the need for continued advocacy and action on this issue by all stakeholders, including the public.

The work must also continue on ensuring gender equality, which is the root cause of gender-based violence, she said.

“Gender-based violence, in all its forms, needs to be condemned and victims supported, without exceptions. This scourge must end and it starts with all of us,” Simplis Barrow said.

Barrow encourages all victims of gender-based violence to report violations committed against them and calls on authorities to respond to reports with sensitivity, professionalism and without fear or favor.
