Residents of Navua have raised serious concerns with the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Justice, Law and Human Rights regarding the blatant selling of drugs in Navua and children being at high risk after a man who raped his mother coming back into their community.

While making his submission on the Sex Offenders Registration Bill, a Navua resident says the increased prevalence of hard drugs will also result in the increase in sex offences.

He says this is a worrying concern.

A few of the Navua residents also raised concerns about a man who has served time for raping his mother, and is back in the community. They say that they are concerned about their children and the community should work together to monitor this person.

Chairperson of the Parliamentary Committee on Justice, Law and Human Rights, Alvick Maharaj says the Sex Offenders Registration will give some comfort to everyone in the community.
