"In December 2017, Armenia’s parliament passed a law on violence in the family, but women and children remain at risk until the government comprehensively changes how police respond to complaints of violence and provides accessible, quality services for survivors. The law defines domestic violence as 'a physical, sexual, psychological, or economic act of violence' between family members, including spouses in unregistered marriages. It is not clear if the law applies to couples who are not in registered or unregistered marriages. Just before submitting the law to parliament in mid-November, the government revised the law to include 'strengthening of traditional values in the family' as a key principle. Authorities also changed...more

"Armenian judges often engage in victim blaming and look at whether a victim in a domestic violence case 'provoked or stimulated' the criminal act. In the court room, it is not uncommon for perpetrators’ sentences to be reduced due to mitigating circumstances, and judges may consider infidelity — whether substantiated by evidence or not — a mitigating circumstance and subsequently reduce a perpetrator’s sentence. If monetary compensation is requested by the victim, the judge or prosecutor accuses her of being after the abuser’s money"

"In 2013 the government acknowledged the issue of domestic violence and created a special police division to address issues related to children and domestic violence; however, to this day, the division has not received the authority to establish mechanisms. For example, there are no systematic police processes for investigating cases, making appropriate referrals, implementing legal procedures, such as issuing protection orders, and properly documenting elements of abuse in incident reports. Police are not legally allowed to detain a batterer, intervene in situations of violence, remove an abuser from the home, or offer basic protection to victims and their children. In practice, a victim must report at least three times in...more

"Between 2010 and 2015, the Coalition to Stop Violence against Women recorded the killing of 30 women by an existing or former partner or a family member. According to a coalition study published in May, many of these women had sought help from family or state institutions before being killed. Local organizations maintained that police inaction and lenient sentences for partners convicted of abuse contributed to such deaths. During the year there were several instances in which courts reportedly issued minimal fines to husbands who had abused their wives for years"

"Spousal abuse and violence against women appeared widespread. According to the Asian Development Bank’s July 2015 Armenia Gender Assessment, gender- based violence, especially domestic violence, was one of the most critical problems faced by women in the country. Surveys by the government and women’s organizations confirmed the assessment that domestic violence was widespread, affecting between 25 to 66 percent of women (depending how broad the definition of domestic violence). Authorities did not effectively prosecute domestic violence. Rape, spousal abuse, and domestic violence was underreported due to social stigma, the absence of female police officers and investigators, and at times police reluctance to act. According to local observers, most domestic violence...more

"Rape is a criminal offense, and conviction carries a maximum sentence of 15 years; in the absence of a specific domestic violence law, general rape statutes applied to the prosecution of spousal rape. Domestic violence was similarly prosecuted under general statutes dealing with violence"

"These data show that for the victims of domestic violence one of the main reasons to avoid law-enforcement bodies, particularly the police, is the officers' indifference as well as the lack of psychological skills to understand and support the victims. Moreover, only 27.5% of the victims of domestic violence were satisfied with the police response, and 20.5% mentioned that the violator was punished. The main reason for the discontent with the police's response of those victims of domestic violence who applied to the police was the officers' indifference (65.8%). 17.9% of those who expressed discontent with the police response mentioned insufficiency of evidences to call the violator to responsibility.

"Besides, police officers should be able to properly record and process the reports on domestic violence. The below findings of the public opinion poll commissioned by the OSCE Office in Yerevan show that according 15.3% of the respondents one of the reasons for mistrusting the law-enforcement services and for reluctance to seek their assistance is that officers recommended them to reconcile with the perpetrator in order to keep the family.

"Apart from the scarcity of police officers, a significant problem comes up with their professional skills. The below findings of the public opinion poll conducted by the Proactive Society Human Rights NGO as commissioned by the OSCE Office in Yerevan show that among the reasons for the reluctance of domestic violence victims to apply to the law-enforcement bodies are the lack of psychological skills of officers (18.4%) and lack of female police officers directly working with the victims (5.3%). Further, where in the city of Yerevan it is possible to assign a female police officer to contact and work with a victim of domestic violence, in the provinces it is...more

"However, the first issue that arises immediately when discussing the police’s role in the prevention of domestic violence is the number and skills of police officers involved in that function. According to one of the interviewed experts, today in the entire RA territory there are 543 neighbourhood police officers involved in public order management, and only 405 of them are neighbourhood inspectors. It is estimated that two police officers cover 10.000 people, while domestic violence is only one of their numerous functions such as identification of illegal arms and armament, narcotic drugs, stolen vehicles etc. Also, taking into consideration that the population of Armenia is not evenly distributed and in...more

"A similar situation appears also with the application of Article 73 of the RA Criminal Code, first of all because by specifying that only perpetrators of not grave crimes can be exempted from criminal liability, if they reconcile with the victims, mitigate or compensate the inflicted damages in some other way, the lawmakers significantly limit the scope of the Article. Also, by the phrase in Article 73 that ‘a person can be exempted from criminal liability’ the right to make an arbitrary decision is granted to the court, rather than victims"
