Autonomous Women's Center has sent a letter to the Minister of Internal Affairs on the occasion of adoption of the Special protocol for treatment of police officers in cases of violence against women and violence in intimate relationship with the request to delete section 3.7. False Report from the Protocol.

AWC welcomes the adoption of the document and states that, except for the disputed paragraph, a special Protocol for police officers in a good way guides and standardizes practice of police officers. In the explanation of the letter, it is stated that the paragraph on false reporting is in contrast with other parts of the protocol, as well as to the fact that for a certain percentage of reports of violence against women, there was no (sufficient) evidence, which does not mean that there was no violence, or that an allegation is false.
