The Attorney General at the Court of Cassation, president of the Public Prosecutor, had sent a circular a few days ago to the prosecution in the context of the fight against violence against women during the state of health emergency decreed in the Kingdom.
In this circular, the president of the Public Prosecutor's Office called for work to develop digital platforms or applications for smartphones in order to collect complaints relating to violence against women.
The circular insisted on the need to protect children, by targeting the stability of families and cohabitation of their members in accordance with human rights principles, which give women a special place in the family and social fabric as well as the opening of public trials - if necessary - at the appropriate time and with necessary firmness.
