LThe CRADLE has joined other petitioners in a case where two girls are suing over alleged sexual abuse by a teacher. The respondents in this case are the Attorney General, the Teacher Service Commission and the school concerned.

The office of the Director of Public Prosecutions will also, by order of the Court, be enjoined as a party. In this case, the petitioners are seeking for among others a declaration that all acts of sexual and gender-based violence against children amount to a violation of their right to education.  A further declaration being sought is that teachers, in their legal capacity as guardians, have a duty to protect all children from sexual and gender-based violence by errant teachers.
