Members of the newly established FSII Men Against Rape are proposing a nationwide campaign against rape and have held successful discussions with the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force as one of its activities towards this campaign.
A statement from Forum Solomon Islands International yesterday says the move is part of their information gathering to put together a national concept to end rape in Solomon Islands.
During their discussions, FSII Chief Executive Officer Benjamin Afuga declared the discussion is crucial to equip members of FSII Men Against Rape with relevant advocacy knowledge before carrying out the campaign.
From the Police Sexual Assault Unit, Senior Sergeant Solomon Sisimia says the Unit welcomes the initiative.
He also pledged to work with the FSII Men Against Rape group against Gender-based violence, especially rape in the country.
Meanwhile, FSII Men Against Rape says it will continue to meet with other important stakeholders to rally support for its fight against rape in Solomon Islands in its weekly meetings and consultation next week.
