Police intervene in the viral allegations of a domestic violence matter
The police have intervened in the alleged case of domestic violence that has been circulating on Facebook.
Yesterday the Facebook page of an automobile dealer began to show pictures of an abused woman.
“Been a victim of domestic violence for the last 12 years, and I tried to walk away a million times before, but he always threatened to kill me and my family and loved ones, so I always returned to a life of torture, but now I’ve reached to the point of no return. Lit him kill whoever displeases him. It is not the first and it won’t be the last,” one of the posts on the page stated.
The woman has removed herself and two minor children from the Chaguanas home of the alleged attacker.
The woman is to be interviewed today by the head of the Central Division to determine whether she wishes to press charges against her alleged attacker.
She is also to receive counselling from the Victim and Witness Support Unit and the children are to be referred to the Child Protection Unit and the Children’s Authority.
Following her first post, the wife of the business owner declared that the page was not hacked, and she has decided to make her abuse become public.
“This page was not hacked,” the post stated. “Left him yesterday for good and not turning back this time. He beat me like a dog in front of his business place Wednesday evening. He took my phone, money and vehicle away and told the police officers my two children are not his. Dropped them off in Chaguanas police station without a change of clothes or 25 cents for food.”
