But many believe that the woman was being raped with some calling for the authorities to investigate the matter with a view to laying rape charges.

    Can we start a discussion of the rape cases in Montserrat that never get solved? That would be a better story. Rape cases in Montserrat are never solved and even if persons are charged, they almost never go to trial. The horrific 2011 rape case involving Dr. Selvyn Maloney, Dieje Daly and Daryl Cabey never went to trial even though the DPP had sufficient evidence to formally charge all three men of rape against a young female. There was evidence to prove that the young female was violently raped and sodomized with a beer bottle by these three men. Theses three men continue to dwell and socialise within the Montserrat society without having gone to trial before a jury of their peers . No justice was served!
