is it just a piece of news? a women, mother of 5 children has been savagely assassinated by her husband who was beating her with a “stick” as one of the little children told the neighbours.
where is the law? still in the drawers of the parliament.
some months ago, the commission who has to study the law, changed it, and amended it as per the sects preferences! taking the most important stipulations and amending them not only to protect women and criminalize violence, but also the Members of Parliaments amended the law in a way making the sects laws of the personal status code predominant on a civil law…. that was needed to establish Equality and Justice among all citizens!!!!
the stories of Roula, Wafa, Rita, and soo many beaten and violented women should awake those who reconducted for themselves and let them study and know how to legiferate in a way that BUILD A STATE OF LAW. A LAW under which all CITIZENS are equal.
I am raging, and sad, if the MPs need some courses in legislation, laws, political sciences , let them ask us for help!!! and stop distributing services instead of DOING their Job RIGHT!
here are some reports about what happened
