Praia, Jan 17 (Inforpress) – The prime minister today challenged anyone who knows of situations of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) to report it and indicate the name of the person who committed the act because it is a public crime.
Ulisses Correia e Silva thus reacted to recent statements by the former chairman of the board of directors of Rádio e Televisão de Cabo Verde (RTC), Policarpo de Carvalho, who said that there were situations of GBV involving members of the Government.
“GBV is a public crime, anyone who knows something should report it and the denunciation cannot be generic, there is no GBV practiced by an abstract or general institution such as the Government. It is practiced by people, therefore, if there is an indication of who, there is the right even of those who denounce to indicate the name, and the Justice, from then on, takes care of the process, also because it is a public crime”, declared the head of the Government.
Policarpo de Carvalho, presented on Monday, at a press conference, his resignation from the company, following accusations of GBV, stating that he is the victim of a “very well put together” plan by his “enemies from the government”.
