Official urges people to monitor State decisions

The National,Wednesday June 29th, 2016

The national programme coordinator of the Family Sexual Violence Committee, Ume Wainetti, says civil societies and the Government should monitor decisions that may contribute to the statistics on sexual violence.
She said this at a meeting with the committee’s partners and its advocacy and communication technical working group members.
Wainetti said the organisations should be aware that their participation and feedback would assist in monitoring government decisions and policies and urged them to be present at committee meetings to take part in discussions.
The committee works with its technical working group members on family and sexual violence prevention and responses.
“The government organisation responsible must provide development policies and guidelines for investors before allowing them to operate in our country,” Wainetti said.
“For instance, the Government is allowing more nightclubs in our country but there are no proper guidelines in place on how they should operate.”
