(ANSA) - Piacenza, October 3 - A Tunisian woman in Italy
called on other victims of domestic violence to report their
tormentors to police on Wednesday.
"I invite all women who suffer beatings and violence to not
tolerate what I went through, but to go to the police," said the
resident of the northern Italian city of Piacenza.
The woman's husband, a 39-year-old Tunisian manual laborer,
beat her, forced her to wear full cover and forbid her to see
Italian friends.
The man also raped her in order to have additional
children.
At one point, the man struck her on the head with hookah.
When the woman sought medical help she told doctors that
her wounds were self-inflicted injuries.
Twelve years of abuse ended in June when - after yet
another beating - the woman reported her husband to police.
During police investigations, the man returned to live in
Tunisia.
The woman remained in Piacenza with her four children.
