Domestic Violence Law is One Step Closer to Completion

Yesterday, the Human Rights Ombudsman delivered his recommendations to Parliament on the draft Domestic Violence Law. I don’t have a list of all the recommendations, but I know my work made a substantial impact on the recommendations provided. For instance, the “24 hour hotline” recommendation the article mentions was based on the draft law simply saying “a hotline” without giving any further details. Our worry was that the hotline would run only during working hours and thus be useless to victims at night when they are more likely to be abused by a spouse coming home from work.
