"At one point, during the beatings, Magbule [not her real name] thought her only choice was whether to endure the violence or take her own life. 'I had nowhere to go,' she said. 'I was severely beaten, but I endured it all. On the day I was thrown out, I could not cope anymore.' Magbule was driven out of her home by her family in a remote region of southern Kosovo last year. Today, Magbule – whom BIRN cannot identify or describe – is one of seven residents of a safe house for victims of domestic abuse in the southern Kosovo city of Prizren" (Para 1-4).

Three different laws address sexual harassment and establish different definitions of it.

It imposes imprisonment of one to five years on any person who, by abusing his or her position forces a subordinate or dependent to engage in sexual intercourse.
