A total of four women, reported to have been arrested and detained in Guinea for trafficking Sierra Leonean children, would be flown into Sierra Leone today.
The four women, whose names are withheld together with four children, have already been handed over to the Sierra Leone ambassador to Guinea, Sheku.B Saccoh, for onwards delivery to the government of Sierra Leone.
This disclosure was made by the minister of Information and Communications, Ibrahim Ben Kargbo, at his Youyi building office, Brookfields in Freetown.
He said the All People’s Congress (APC) government was a respecter of the rule of law, and was therefore aware of the recent Child Traffic Act that was passed in parliament.
The minister did not out rightly disclose the fates of the four women after they would have been handed over to the government of Sierra Leone.
In another development, the minister disclosed that President Ernest Koroma would soon launch an attitude project to be implemented by his ministry to adequately sensitize the people of Sierra Leone in the name of national development.
“We cannot develop as a country if we continue in corruption and destruction of public asset”, he said.
Mr Kargbo said his ministry had already hosted a stakeholders’ meeting on attitude change where sub-committees had been formed to ensure the implementation of the attitude change project , expected to last for a year.
