Kenyan priest charged in relation to alleged case of sexual abuse at St. Catherine church
The police have now charged a Kenyan Roman Catholic Priest who was arrested in relation to an alleged case of sexual abuse.
The charges include sexual intercourse with a person under sixteen years, sexual touching of a child, grievous sexual assault, and abduction of a child under sixteen years.
The alleged offences were committed on the afternoon of Sunday, March 19, but were only reported to authorities on Saturday, June 23.
The incidents reportedly took place at a Roman Catholic Church in Portmore, St. Catherine.
Police say the complainant is a 12-year-old primary school student.
Reports are that the priest befriended the child and lured her to his home where he allegedly assaulted her.
The charges were filed after the man was positively identified by the complainant during an identification parade and a question-and-answer interview with his attorney.
