Turkish government has proposed a draft law which introduces firm measures to prevent violence against women.
ANKARA- The draft package was submitted Monday to the Turkish parliament for the consideration of an experts' committee.
The package includes measures such as electronic shackling, providing women and their children with accommodation and temporary financial assistance.
A temporary bodyguard could be provided to women on request or exofficio if they are under threat of fatal violence as well as protection through identity and official record change.
Potential or actual perpetrator of violence could be forced to turn in the person's weapon even if the person is authorized to carry a weapon due to his official profession.
A person under a restraint order could be put in 3-10 days of forced custody if the person violates restraining order.
