Two cases of domestic violence are recorded every day in the RA Police

According to the RA Police, in 2012-2016, 3571 cases of domestic violence were registered during the reporting period, in other words, the law enforcement bodies reported about 2 cases every day. In January-September 2017, 602 cases were registered, that is, the regularity has not only been maintained but has a tendency of growth.


These are official figures, but as the Minister of Justice notes, many of the cases of domestic violence are still undisclosed. “It should also be noted that a high level of lamentation is traditionally inherent in domestic violence. Most victims do not apply to law enforcement for various socio-economic and cultural reasons, “Davit Harutyunyan said during yesterday’s public debate.


By the way, the killings of women in the context of domestic violence in 2015 constitute 17% of the murders in the republic.

Representative of the RA Investigative Committee David Tumasyan presents the distribution of criminal cases initiated on cases of domestic violence during the first half of 2016 and 2017.
