The video that began circulating on social media recently showing a number of young males raping a young female was not recorded in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Police said that the video was recorded in another country, and that charges have been brought there.

Updating the media on the crime situation in SVG, acting Assistant Commissioner of Police Trevor “Buju” Bailey noted that police had launched an investigation into the video. 

“We have not been able to confirm that that took place here in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. In fact, I know that several Caribbean territories launched investigations to ascertain whether or not it occurred on their shores as well,” said Bailey, who is also the officer in charge of the Sexual Offences Unit. 

“I believe with some certainty an arrest was made on a foreign soil in respect to that video. So, it is not a Vincentian video, it is not an offence that was committed on our soil. But, in fact, it was elsewhere and the authorities there … have dealt with that video,” the nation’s chief crime fighter said.

One reply on “Gang rape video not filmed in SVG”

  1. We have not been able to confirm that took place in St Vincent so says Trevor Trevor Bailey. If it did not take place in St Vincent, In which jurisdiction was it? Is there a legitimate expectation for the public in knowing where the incident took place in order to exclude St Vincent ? Does the public has a right to know or just trust the RSPF? How do you balance the right to know with legitimate expectation?
