Executive Director to Caribbean Committee against Sex Crimes, and CEO of Zandoli International Foundation, Camille St. Omer is calling on the authorities in Saint Lucia to investigate child molestation and sexual abuse on the island. The recent circulation of a video including underage children engaging in violation of other children is a reminder of the decay in the moral fabric of society.
Deeply troubled by the unsettling news of the exploitation of minors in heinous ways, the organization hopes that crimes perpetrated against children will receive the fullest support of the justice system even in instances where victims lack financial or legal support. A major concern of CCASC are communities where child abuse is rampant and the incomes of families fall below the median for that district, crimes against minors go beyond the socially acceptable time frame. CCASC believes that these lower income demographics require immediate and free support by organizations on the island.
CCASC is prepared to share its programs of social development to minimize child sexual abuse and distribution of free education materials to families and school children. Caribbean Committee Against Sex Crimes is an organization with stakeholders and partner organizations throughout CARICOM and the world comprised of over 35+ groups advocating for child molestation prevention. CCASC hosted the US Department of Justice SMART office in a November 2016 meeting to determine best practices and viable options regarding CCASC and Zandoli’s advocacy for the establishment of a regional sex offender’s registry.

Port of Spain, Trinidad, June 7, 2016: Zandoli congratulates Saint Lucians on their new chapter! We look forward to continuing our work with the Government of Saint Lucia in a capacity that serves the greater good of humanity. After considerable research we are looking to amend our original petition to include that the Sex Offender Registry be accessible to authorized parties. This includes, but is not limited to law enforcement agencies, health care workers, and education professionals. We thank the people of Saint Lucia for their support in helping bring this effort to the desks of our leaders. We entrust them to move forward with the safety of Saint Lucians as their highest priority.
