First, he said that there will be a Commission against domestic violence. He also announced, if he returns to power, there will be a specialized court, chaired by a female magistrate or former magistrate, to deal with cases of domestic violence, sexual abuse and harassment against women. “There should also be a special desk in police stations to deal with domestic violence cases, as well as a specialized cell and team to do psychological follow-ups,” he said. Navin Ramgoolam’s other measure is that 10% of public contracts will be awarded to companies that have at least 50% female staff.
