Various movement control orders were implemented since March 2020 with the intention to prevent widespread infection as the COVID-19 cases surged. As a result of limited movement, people were confined to their homes. This included victims of domestic violence who were left trapped in the same space as their abusers. Though movement restrictions have now been lifted in most states, the pandemic and its effects continue to adversely affect domestic violence victims. While statistics show an increase of reported cases in urban areas, the opposite or rather a decline of reported cases is seen in rural areas.
Advocates against domestic violence know that the rate of domestic abuse has not decreased, but rather that victims have been unable to safely connect with the relevant authorities. This dialogue session, organised by the Bar Council Family Law Committee (“FLC”), shall discuss and evaluate the prevention mechanism in place to curtail the problems faced by the victims of domestic violence in gaining access to justice, and discuss the challenges faced by the courts and law enforcement in responding to cases of domestic violence.
