GYLA Discusses Trends in Criminal Cases of Domestic Violence, Domestic Crime and Violence against Women

26 March 2021 GYLA Online Discussion

On March 25, Georgian Young Lawyers’ Association (GYLA), with USAID-PROLoG support, organized an online discussion on trends in cases of domestic violence, domestic crime and violence against women identified through four years of criminal trial monitoring. GYLA Analyst Tamar Bochorishvili, Tbilisi City Court Judge Aleksandre Iashvili, Department of Prosecutorial Activities Supervision and Strategic Development representatives Natia Mukhiashvili and Tamar Zakutashvili, and Tea Shengelia, representatives of Human Rights Protection Division at the Ministry of Internal Affairs, participated, with Levan Katamadze (GYLA) moderating the discussion. 

Tamar Bochorishvili made a brief presentation of the GYLA four-year (September, 2016 – February 2020) court monitoring report results – statistics concerning domestic violence, preventive measures, the importance of determining discriminatory motive, as well as recommendations to the relevant state bodies. The participants talked about the challenges in cases of domestic violence and violence against women, the role of witness and victim coordinator, and the necessity of raising public awareness on violence against women. While the general response of the justice system towards domestic violence and violence against women is continuously improving over these years, there is still much room for progress for all parties in the process. The discussion was organized in the framework of Women’s History Month.
