Stabroek News: Over the last weekend, three women were killed, highlighting the stark reality that violence against women continues to be a big problem in spite of government interventions. During a telephone interview with Stabroek News yesterday, Manickchand admitted that the number of deaths has risen and she pleaded with women to get help or get out of the relationship in which they are abused.
She said that in addition to the ministry, help could also be sought from partner agencies such as Help and Shelter, Red Thread, other women’s organisations and churches. She added that help could also be sought from the Legal Aid Clinic which has been set up in six of the ten administrative regions and the police. Manickchand said that while there have been complaints in the past about police inaction, she has noticed that the force is now responding to reports. However, there is still room for improvement on the part of the police, she stated.
