The Women’s Legal Centre said it is
dismayed at the incorrect and inadequate reporting on sexual offences in the
2012/2013 national crime statistics released on Thursday.
Director of Women’s Legal Centre
Jennifer Williams said research confirms year after year that sexual offences
are chronically under-reported to the police.
Williams said there are concerns
about the accuracy of the stats on the number of sexual offences, more
especially with the country having a problem of under reporting of these
She added that the Centre also calls
for the stats to be released monthly.
