Domestic Violence Prevention Bill: For and Against – Opinions

The deadline for submission of proposals on the draft law “On the Protection of Domestic Violence and Protection of victims of Domestic Violence” published in E-draft.am has been completed.

At the same time, the clash of opinions on this project is happening not only on the on-line space, but on different platforms and in a heated atmosphere.

There were interesting ideas, but one could ask a question again. The purpose of the discussion was question-answer when people were unaware of the issue and could hear the answer and the public discussions are still ongoing”. The minister noted that the government will continue with the same stubborn steps to adopt the bill. “The problem is in our society and naturally it should be solved,” the minister said.
