The third week of the National Caravan ended with the meeting organised in Bacău at the County Council.
The debate that followed the documentary was opened by Ms. Ţîţaru Daniela, General Manager at DGASPC Bacău, who raised the problem of the victims’ metality not to leave the marital residence for the sake of the children, but also because of economic dependence and limited financial resources.
A second issue that was raised was that of education to prevent such cases, and in this respect a representative of the Archepiscopate of Roman and Bacău proposed a partnership between DGASPC and the Archepiscopate to carry out two types of actions. On the one hand, the priests should be trained on how to intervene when a domestic violence case is reported to them, and on the other hand the introduction of a preventive module during religion classes.
Police sub-commissioner Boca Sorin, a criminal investigation officer, has brought to our attention that acts of “minor” violence that are repetitive and have a long duration lead to major violence that can turn the victim into an aggressor.
By discussing the current legislation and the possibility of improving it, Mr.sub-commissioner Boca said the 90 days of medical care currently provided in Article 193 of the New Penal Code are definitely too many to act in the interest and defense of the victim of domestic violence.
We thank Bacâu County Police Inspectorate, represented by Police Chief Inspector Ciobanu Gabriela – spokeswoman, police sub-commissioner Moţică Narcis – Public Order Service, police sub-commissioner Butnaru Narcisa – Proximity Component Coordinator, sub-inspector Amariei Măriuca – Officer of the Analysis and Prevention Department Of Crime and sub-commissioner Boca Sorin – a criminal investigation officer for the collaboration and involvement in this national campaign.
We would also like to thank the General Directorate for Social Assistance and Child Protection for the support in organizing the event, the hosting and the notable interventions in the debate.
