Committee Against Torture: Monaco
CAT session 046 (2011)
(17 June 2011, CAT/C/MCO/4-5, Concluding observations on fourth/fifth report, para. 11)
"The Committee notes that Bill No. 869, on efforts to combat and prevent specific forms of violence against women, children and persons with disabilities, was submitted to the National Council in October 2009. It remains concerned, however, at the delay in the process of adopting this important legislation (arts. 2, 13, 14 and 16).
The State party should ensure that Bill No. 869 is adopted quickly in order to prevent and combat all forms of violence against women, children and persons with disabilities. It should also ensure that corporal punishment for children is explicitly prohibited in all areas of life and that domestic violence is punished. The Committee further recommends that the State party should organize training or awareness raising campaigns aimed specifically at informing victims of domestic violence about their rights."Read more from CAT session 046 (2011)
