Only 10 per cent of women victims of domestic violence call police

Santo Domingo.- Only 10% of women victims of domestic violence denounce the aggression to police, chief Manuel Castro affirmed Tuesday.

The official stated the National Police’s “tenacious commitment” to work to reduce cases of domestic violence affecting society.

Castro said the fight against gender violence must be focused on critical paths to reduce the crime which causes so many deaths.

The official spoke together with Minister of women Alejandrina Germán, UN Population Fund representative Sonia Vásquez, Justice minister Francisco Domínguez, among others, to mark International Day of Human Rights and International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

    Is that because the other 90% know or believe that nothing will be done or worse that they will receive further violence? Are complaints discreet?
