Armenia Needs a Domestic Violence Law
December 8, 12:00

The official statistics shows the Police of the Republic of Armenia received 1500 reports on attacks against women in the period of January-August 2014 while twelve women are reported to have died in domestic violence homicides this year. The Police identified those women’s deaths as domestic violence-caused deaths.

Specialists point out several reasons why the prevention of the issue remains slow and complicated in Armenia.

Secondly, violence victims do not trust law enforcement agencies and, most importantly, Armenia lacks a separate relevant law.
