Police in St Elizabeth have confirmed reports of intimidation against the family of the 15 year-old girls who was allegedly sexually molested by Moravian Pastor, Rupert Clarke.

However, they say that they are still investigating, although no statements have been given.

Police charged the 64-year-old clergyman after they said a patrol then found him with the girl in a "compromising position" in his parked motor vehicle near Nain, St Elizabeth, on the night of December 28.

Clarke, who was granted $800,000 bail on January 4, is to return to court on February 13.

Since news broke about the incident, there have been raging debates on social media, which have been aggravated by the action of Hampton School Principal Heather Murray, who attempted to blocked television cameras at Clarke's bail hearing.

In the face of condemnation for her attendance in court, Murray issued a statement explaining that she had gone to give support to her friend, who is the pastor's wife, but the calls for her resignation as chief administrator at the all girls school have not ceased.
