A 10-year-old girl who was allegedly raped and impregnated by her elder brother in their parents’ house has given birth to a baby boy.
The victim, name withheld, welcomed her child via a cesarean section in a hospital in Florencia, Colombia. Both the little boy and his young mum are safe according to the report.
The alleged rape happened in Puerto Leguizamo, Putumayo, where the girl lived with her parents. Her parents did not want to hand over their son to the local authorities, reported the local media.
Hospital director Camilo Diaz told local media:
“According to the information we have received from the police, the minor became pregnant after she was sexually abused by a family member, apparently her brother”.
The investigation into the claims of child abuse continues.
The rape cases in Colombia seems to increase. In 2015, the rape rate for Colombia was 27.8 cases per 100,000 population.
Rape rate of Colombia increased from 7.6 cases per 100,000 population in 2006 to 27.8 cases per 100,000 population in 2015 growing at an average annual rate of 18.44 %.
This case, however, is not just a rape case but a case of incest and child abuse. This further pushes the investigation.
The question lying on the lips of some however is, how far would the investigation go and would there be justice to this? Don’t forget the parents had earlier declined from reporting their son to the local authorities.
