"The law prohibits domestic violence, including spousal abuse, which is broadly defined by a 2009 federal statute to include physical, psychological, and economic violence. Survivors of domestic violence may secure protective measures through the civil courts. Family court judges have the right to bar a perpetrator from a victim’s home or workplace. The law requires the state to open a criminal investigation, potentially resulting in life imprisonment, in cases where violence results in death. The law imposes stricter penalties on those who kill their spouses, partners, or children as a consequence of their gender. According to local NGOs, lack of police and judicial vigilance often led to a lack of...more

They noted a lack of interest in or training for law enforcement officials in protecting survivors or enforcing measures against aggressors, a lack of gender training for legal aid lawyers, and judicial...more

I did note, however, a serious need for dedicated training programmes for all officials, whose responsibilities might bring them into contact with victims- judges, prosecutors, police officers, lawyers, social and health workers and teachers. The training of police officers and judges appears to be of crucial importance, in light of the numerous reports I received of police officers refusing to take reports from victims of domestic violence and judges in family proceedings trying to mediate between victims of domestic violence and perpetrators with the aim to...more

"'Women who have suffered violence are faced with the lack of a systematic, coherent and effective implementation of international and federal legal standards across the country, resulting in significant variations between provinces and in differing levels of protection for women and girls.'
