SEXUAL OFFENDERS An analysis of 50 offenders and their offences

This document uses Court records and departmental information to look at a range of issues that relate to sexual offending. Although sexual offenders make up the vast majority of the detainee population in Vanuatu up until now there has been little examination of these offenders and the offences they commit. A lack of factual information is a barrier to the development of elective responses and intervention. The aim of this document is to provide a factual foundation for discussion amongst stakeholders as to the appropriate community response to this difficult and concerning issue.
