Statistics on the reported cases under the family and sexual violence (FSV) unit is concerning, says NCD metropolitan superintendent, Commander Perou N’Dranou.
N’Dranou said there were about 300 reported cases in 2015, 307 cases in 2016 and 261 reported cases in 2017.
The Met Sup noted that out of the total (868), only about 362 cases have been closed so far; 190 cases closed in 2015, 106 in 2016 and 66 cases closed in 2017.
N’Dranou attributed this to a number of factors, including manpower and facilities.
“However, there is no excuse for the outcome.”
