Parents of Seven Boys Sexually Assaulted By a Man in Addis Abeba Seek Justice, VoA Reports



According to the Voice of America (VoA) Amharic service the parents of seven boys sexually assaulted by a 19 year old man in Addis Abeba have complained about lack of justice. The young boys (6-9 years old) live near Abadina, Gulele Sub-city, Addis Abeba, Ethiopia. All the victims come from a poorer family background. The suspect, who lives in the same area, is said to come from a relatively better off family.

The parents told the VoA Amharic service that the victims are being discriminated in their neighbourhood, schools and from courts. The parent of one of the victims said that she has been unable to find justice, psychiatric service and support especially liquid foods since the victims can not control their bowls.
