Five soldiers who are under investigation after allegations of rape were leveled against them in a Region One community, have been withdrawn from the community, and are in custody.
In a statement today, the Guyana Defence Force announced that it is conducting its own inquiry into the allegations as the Guyana Police Force also probes the allegations leveled against the soldiers.
News Source understands that a teenage girl in the community filed a rape complaint against the men, accusing them of raping her after a party that they all attended.
The Guyana Defence Force said it will spare no measure to ensure its ranks uphold the Values and Standards of the Force, and maintain the confidence of the communities which they serve and defend.
