MINISTER Michael Lashley is looking forward to tougher laws against domestic violence and stalking, which he described as companions.
He said yesterday that domestic violence not only “creates a serious divide in families” but could force families “to be totally dependent on the State” by causing the death of the sole breadwinner.
“Every week or every two weeks, there is some murder and when we examine the facts it is as a result of an act of domestic violence,” Lashley said.
He made the comments in the House of Assembly when the Estimates Debate focused on the$65 million allocation for the Ministry of Social Care, Constituency Empowerment and Community Development.
