NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Director of Equality Bahamas Alicia Wallace is refuting the prime minister’s statement that opposition toward the Protection Against Violence Bill 2023, came at the last hour.

She says Equality Bahamas participated often and provided feedback during consultations.

Wallace says it’s actually the consultations themselves being last-minute, as well as no access to the most recent drafts of bills that cause the issue.

A similar concern arose at the recent consultative forum covering the Protection Against Violence Bill 2023 and the Sexual Offenses Amendment Bill 2023 on July 5th, where audience members and NGO leaders complained about not being able to read the most recent drafts of the bills.

Wallace says this is commonplace with consultations.
