Punishment for violence against women to be increased: Erdoğan

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Friday last week said the government will submit the sixth judicial package to the parliament soon and the package will increase penalties for abuse against women.

“We have implemented five judicial packages since May 30, 2019, when we announced our Judicial Reform Strategy Document. Hopefully, we are adding a new link to this reform chain with a new judicial package that we will present to the discretion of our parliament soon,” Erdoğan said in a video message sent to the ruling Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) “Dec. 10 World Human Rights Day” program.

“With this package, in which we will increase the mobility of the Human Rights Compensation Commission, the penalties for harassment and stalking against women will be increased,” he added.

Inspired by the “people-oriented state tradition,” Turkey will continue its reform will in the field of democracy and fundamental freedoms in the coming period, he stated.

“Discriminatory regulations that do not give women the right to exist in the public sphere can easily be implemented in Western countries without any reaction. The silence of those who target us through the Istanbul Convention in the face of these persecutions, which also victimize our citizens, is another strange thing,” Erdoğan said.
