The disclosure by Mrs Simpson Miller yesterday followed several peaceful protests across the island in support of victims of rape and other sexual offences.
The protests were sparked by the rape of three young girls and two women in Irwin, St James, this week.
Speaking on her return from the United Nations General Assembly, the Prime Minister said the regulations will include provision for the creation of a sex offenders’ registry.
Mrs Simpson Miller says her administration is determined to provide the required laws and resources to fight crime and is moving swiftly to implement measures such as the sex offenders’ registry, which is already provided for in law.
