Police, Govt ‘not doing enough’

Social Share

BOTH THE police and Government are hampering the fight against domestic violence.
Lawyer Wilfred Abrahams made this charge last night during a panel discussion hosted by the Barbados Labour Party’s (BLP) Christ Church South constituency branch at St Christopher’s Primary School.
Abrahams told the small but keen gathering the police were waiting for “new protection order” laws promised by Government to be passed before taking more decisive action against people who practise domestic violence.
He also said Government appeared to be dragging its feet on the legislation, complaining that despite promises “nothing has happened since the last (victim of domestic violence) died” in mid-August.
