Representatives of Kosovo institutions, the Ombudsperson, the Police, and organisations dealing with protection of women’s rights said on Monday, December 9, that violence against women should stop.
They made their call in a conference organised to mark the end of activities of the “16 days of activism to end violence against women” awareness raising campaign organised by the UNDP and Kosovo Police, Kosovo daily Koha Ditore reported on Tuesday.
Deputy Prime Minister Edita Tahiri demanded the engagement of the institutional and social actors in the effort to reduce the cases of violence against women as much as possible. She said that violence against women is a primitive phenomenon.
In addition, Ombudsperson Sami Kurteshi said that insults, threats, assaults, public offenses, sexual harassment, and other actions are forms of violence that should be identified and punished.
