Addressing acts of domestic violence justly

The Malta Confederation of Women’s Organisations (MCWO) deplores the behaviour of a high ranking official responsible for Law and Order who perpetrated acts of domestic violence and which sadly gives a negative image on the Police Corp which should be there to support victims of domestic violence in times of distress.

The Confederation is also concerned about the insensitive comments of a senior Cabinet Minister that have been perceived as either condoning or tolerating such unacceptable and criminal behaviour.

The Confederation is therefore calling on the country’s decision makers to immediately disown all acts of violence against women.”
