By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Health issued a statement condemning the sexual violation of vulnerable persons.
The Mental Health Unit says that it is aware that at least one of the victims suffers from a severe mental disorder.
“The Ministry of Health is appalled at this assault on human dignity and is dismayed that these persons felt comfortable enough to record and share this video,” the statement expressed.
The Ministry calls on all human rights actors to denounce this violation of the rights and dignity of mentally disabled persons and to strongly advocate for the most severe punishment to be levied against these violators by the appropriate authorities.
The public is also strongly urged to refrain from circulating this video. In so doing, it begins the change of the culture of stigma, discrimination, and victimization of vulnerable persons who live among us.
