An 11-year-old pregnant girl in Antigua was taken to the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre for fear that the pregnancy may endanger her life.
The matter was discussed in the Antiguan cabinet on Wednesday.
According to notes from the meeting, the police operate a Special Victims Unit to treat minors who suffer similar fate from sexual predators.
However, according to the notes, under the law, confidentiality is required.
“The name of the victim and the names of those who may have victimized the young minor cannot be released,” the notes said. “Confidentiality then serves to protect even those who victimize.”
