Domestic Violence Help

Head of the T&T Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the Rape Crisis Centre Diana Mahabir Wyatt says the incident reported last night in Longdenville of a woman stabbing to death a man accused of abusing her...is just one of many cases where domestic violence turns fatal.

She says a special child abuse and domestic violence unit should be established within the police service.

Although the police service already has a community police unit and a victim and witness support unit under its ambit, she says both units are understaffed and inadequate.

Mrs. Mahabir-Wyatt says not enough is being done to protect women in spite of the Domestic Violence Act.
