The President of Georgia, Salome Zurabishvili, delivered a speech at the solemn event dedicated to Police Day and noted that the country should be leaving domestic violence in the past.
“It is sad that today brutal murders of women are committed in front of children in Georgia. I know that you will not tolerate this, it is a big challenge for you, and I know a lot has been done in this regard. Women feel much more protected when they go to the police and know that this will be followed by a restraining order. It is no longer an exception, but we, you, me, and everyone, know that there is still a lot to be done in this direction so that it does not happen in Georgia, we must not allow it and this is our common goal,” said Zurabishvili.
She added that they should aim for domestic violence to become a thing of the past.
“Then we will be a truly modern, civilized, democratic country and that will be to your credit,” the President said.
