Archbishop Jason Gordon has commented on the “culture of violence” seen in the violence against women in society.
He referred to the recent murder of Andrea Bharatt and the deaths of two suspects while in police custody.
Bharatt, a 23-year-old clerk at the Arima Magistrates’ Court went missing on January 29. Her body was found February 4 in the forest off Aripo Road, Sangre Grande. Her death sparked candlelight vigils, demonstrations calling for women to be protected against violence and the authorities to act. Last rites took place February 12.
