Domestic violence law ‘for all’


Share post:

POLLSTER PETER WICKHAM says domestic violence legislation should cover couples who live apart and be gender neutral.

Speaking at the Lions Club of Christ Church West anniversary celebration last Saturday night, Wickham said behavioural change, though extremely difficult, was the ultimate and only solution to the scourge of domestic violence.

He drew on his CADRES research on domestic violence, which showed that between 2000 and 2007, 20 per cent of all murders in Barbados were related to domestic violence, which meant that the police received reports of violence that could be so classified from people who later turned up dead.
