Video: Round-table on domestic violence

In honor of International Women’s Day, NGO-CEDAW sponsored a live radio broadcast of a round-table discussion on the topic of domestic violence.  View the video in Khmer

Speakers included CHUON Chamrong from Heinrich Boell Foundation, NAP Somaly, women’s rights senior monitor at our member LICADHO and Dr. PUNG Chhiv Kek, NGO-CEDAW’s chairperson.  Our member VOD hotnews produced the radio show with funding from Heinrich Boell Foundation.

Amending the DV Law

NGO-CEDAW continues to call for amendments to the law on domestic violence.  The law should clearly identify which criminal laws should be applied to domestic violence situations.  This week, one man beat his wife, used a knife against her, then tied her up, covered her in gasoline and tried to light her on fire.  He is being charged with violence against a spouse rather than more serious charges such as torture and cruel acts or attempting to commit murder.
