The Trinidad and Tobago Defense Force is attempting to verify damning claims that a soldier raped several school girls.
Yesterday, a widely circulated post suggested that a private from the Cumuto Barracks set up a girl to visit a house where he allegedly drugged and raped her.
It also alleged that he works with a school girl to lure his victims.
She has reportedly confessed to investigators.
A statement from the Defense Force says its first objective is to determine the veracity of the allegations.
It says if these claims are in fact true, then every effort will be made to ensure that those responsible will be brought to justice expeditiously.
The Defense Force says it will work closely with the Police Service in this matter.
