Education Minister Concerned About Disturbing Sex Abuse Reports out of Moravian Church

Minister of Education and Youth, Senator Ruel Reid, says he’s disturbed by reports of the alleged sexual abuse of a 15-year old girl by a Pastor.

The accused Moravian Pastor, Rupert Clarke, has been charged. He’s out on bail.

Minister Reid says the girl’s family feels ostracized.

He’s imploring persons to treat them with sensitivity.

Senator Reid was speaking this morning at a post cabinet media briefing at Jamaica House.

The 15-year-old was found with the 64-year-old pastor on December 28 in what the police describe as a ‘compromising position’.
