18/01/2016, Belgrade: Autonomous Women’s Center addressed an appeal to the MPs, members of the Women's Parliamentary Network, to support the amendments for the implementation of emergency barring orders as an independent police authorization.

During the public hearing on the draft of the new Law on Police, AWC has proposed to the Working group of the Ministry of Interior to implement a new authorization to the police – that in the case of domestic violence, the police can remove from the house/apartment, up to 14 days, the person who carried out violence against the family members – according to the model developed in Austria in 1997.

The appeal in Serbian can be found here.
