The island’s Minister for Health says the abuse of children in St. Lucia is a symptom to several underlying issues.

The sentiment comes following the death of four year old Millan Jn Baptiste who died from severe brain damage five days after he was admitted to the Victoria Hospital.

At the time the child appeared to show signs of physical trauma.

Ms Alvina Reynolds says such cases speak to pure evil in the individuals who choose to take advantage of the vulnerability of children who are not able to defend themselves.

The health Minister stressed that the cycle of abuse will only result in children growing up to be creatures of hate.

She has strongly urged for a stop to child physical abuse.

The father and stepmother of the deceased four year old child have since been arrested and charged in connection with his death.
