Trinidad & Tobago: Outrage over treatment of tormented rape victim

WOMEN, and men, are outraged by the treatment of a rape victim by the police as reported in yesterday’s Sunday Express.

The 23-year-old woman was raped for five hours by Joel Balcon, aka Devon Charles, and her attempt to make a report at the Arima Police Station was dismissed by the officer on duty.

Balcon, who had as many as 70 charges against him, including rape and kidnapping, died in police custody on February 8 while under interrogation by police for the kidnapping of Andrea Bharatt.
