By Aaron Humes: The House of Representatives has given its unanimous support (except for those who are absent) to the Domestic Violence in Belize Motion, 2022 – 27 to zero.
The House resolves in its motion, presented by Minister of Human Development, Families and Indigenous People’s Affairs Dolores Balderamos-Garcia, to denounce and condemn domestic violence in all its forms, as a crime and violation of fundamental human rights; support the call for additional resources to further strengthen the interventions, safeguards and public awareness required to effectively address domestic violence in Belize; to undertake legislative review aimed at filling gaps and putting in the necessary reforms for the response to domestic violence.
It also resolves to, as national leaders take a zero-tolerance position with regard to domestic violence; and prioritize it as a national issue of significance and pledges to take individual and collective actions to end this plague in our constituencies.
We will have highlights of the debate later on.
