In accordance with the announced state of urgency in the country and the increased risk of domestic violence, the National Network to End Violence against Women and Domestic Violence prepared a Request for amending the Decision of 06.04.2020 (36th session of the Government of RNM) for the prohibition of movement of citizens over the entire territory of the country.
Namely, during curfew, there must be exceptions from sanctioning women victims and their children leaving the home because of a threat and a direct risk of violence. Also, when domestic violence is reported during curfew, we are asking that perpetrators be removed from the home and subject to appropriate sanctions (detention, issuance of temporary protective measures, etc.) in order to protect the victim from future violence in her home.
