Rome, June 4 - The Italian government, which last
week adopted an international code to fight violence against
women, will examine its own laws to ensure they are adequate to
protect women, the head of the House justice committee said
Tuesday.
The committee is expected to complete by September 30th its
investigation of Italian laws that relate to the subject of
violence against women, and recommend any necessary changes or
additions, said Donatella Ferranti.
The study, to begin next week, will include not only laws
against violence, stalking and domestic terrorism but also
increased training for judicial staff and investigators.
The committee "will try to find then, through a survey
across the board within a reasonable time, the most appropriate
tools to put an end to the terrible phenomenon of violence
against women," said Ferranti.
Last Tuesday, the House unanimously approved adoption of
the Istanbul Convention on combating violence against women, the
first international instrument of its kind.
All 545 MPs voted in favour of the convention, making Italy
the fifth country to ratify it after Montenegro, Albania, Turkey
and Portugal.
In order for the convention to take effect, it must be
ratified by at least 10 States, eight of which must belong to
the Council of Europe.
The convention aims to create an international framework to
provide protections for women by not only repressing violence
against them but also by encouraging prevention, assistance,
cultural awareness and education on the issues.
