Message from Hon. Dean Jonas on the Recent Gender-Based Home Invasions

As Minister with responsibility for Gender Affairs, it is important for me to ensure that steps are being taken to protect vulnerable groups and to make sure that they are safe and protected from all acts of violence.

In recent months, women have been the targets of home invasions by masked intruders. This is a very concerning development and requires national attention and action.

All women in this country deserve to feel safe and free from violence, particularly within the confines of their homes and with their loved ones.

I strongly urge the individuals who have been the perpetrators of these despicable invasions to desist from these actions.

Hon. Dean Jonas

The Directorate of Gender Affairs has been communicating with the Royal Police Force of Antigua and Barbuda and is actively working on strategies and approaches that can be taken to raise awareness on this issue and to ensure that women are being given the type of assistance needed to prevent these attacks from taking place.

I encourage everyone to be vigilant and to be our neighbour’s keeper. It is our collective duty to ensure that our communities are safe and that our women and children are protected.

My Ministry stands committed and resolute in our role, as it relates to addressing this issue and will support law enforcement in any way that we can to help reduce the frequency in which these crimes are happening.

  1. Dean you are a loser. F off.

    Lol at this:
    “The Directorate of Gender Affairs has been communicating with the Royal Police Force of Antigua and Barbuda and is actively working on strategies and approaches that can be taken to raise awareness on this issue”

    Yet the ABLP government and Cutie, the substantive Minister have NOTHING to say on the out of control crime.

    Serpent will retire you and you will be no more.

    Joker!

  2. Dear Minister Jonas:
    As Minister of Gender Affairs, can you please trash the policy of censorship for women in sleeveless dresses and slippers who have to go to APUA, Police stations or government offices. Not even the churches are so archaic in attire.
    Daily, the 🇦🇬 Fashion Police (local security guards) harass women without sleeves every chance they get.
    In case you didn’t notice, we all live on a tropical island. This is our culture and how our wives, mothers, sisters, aunts and daughters dress.
    Please do the right thing and rubbish that policy.
    Dress codes should only be for the courts. .

    • We go to the United States and any other place for that matter and comply with their rules, why is it we do not want to comply here? If this is the law that is on the record, just do your business and leave. You don’t live there. Tired a dis conversation about APUA and Govt office. This is their rule. Just comply and do your business and leave.
