 Greek minister urges victims to “speak up” amid wave

 Greece will launch a public campaign urging victims of domestic violence to “speak up” following a spate of femicides whose ferocity has shocked the nation.

 There is a rise of domestic violence incidents in the country from 2021. This is made worse by the number of brutal murders  dog exercise equipment exercise peddler inch worms exercise concious supa peach progressive resistance exercise springtime supplements that are committed against women. The arts and sports such as Sofia Bekatorou have made allegations of sexual abuse.

 The new initiative will attempt to spread the message that “even in the last village” there is help for women in relationships that are abusive, the Greek gender equality minister told the Guardian.

 Maria Syrengela said that “What we are witnessing is very concerning, and our message to you is ‘Speak loudly’, we are here for your help.” She said the importance of ensuring that victims of domestic violence know that help is readily available more than ever before. It is crucial for women to be aware of the warning indicators.

 TV channels, social media platforms and the mainstream press will be enlisted as part of the effort to highlight a nationwide  detox supplements west coast fitness craigslist colorado springs mad river occupational health charter fitness colaw fitness zip fitness  system of shelters and counselling centres that are set up to provide legal and psychosocial help. A helpline that is free and offers assistance has also been set up.

 The program described as unprecedented for Greece in scope and scale, will expand on a pilot programme activated during the epidemic, when reports of abuse, which were attributed to prolonged confinement, began to rise.

 “So many women have been intimidated to speak up. This was because it was taboo women remained silent” Syrengela said. “Now, even in Greece’s most remote village, we’re telling them there are services available that could help and that they can begin an entirely new life.”

 There has never been a time when domestic violence was as widely discussed in a country where patriarchal values that are deeply entrenched have not been able to evolve and in cities and towns traditional norms continue to hold sway.

 “There’s been an increase of women coming into the clinic,” said Katerina Kostaki, a psychologist at a counseling center in Syntagma Square, the capital’s main plaza. “All these incidents have created many feelings of anger and pain even for victims who may have  axiom fitness palo verde behavioral health pancare health group exercise classes lifetime fitness parker interactive health massage chair completed their therapy. Many feel guilt and shame that they are with violent men and anxiety they could be next [to be killed].”

 From January through October of in this year, 12 females between 19 and 75 were said to have been killed by their husbands or partner.

 In Crete last week Yiannis Marakis, a father of four, brutally stabbed his ex-wife, Nektaria, 16 times before fleeing from the scene by using a weapon. After threat of suicide, the 54-year-old spent nine hours torturing his estranged wife Nektaria. The couple’s oldest son begged him to surrender to the police.

 Closed-circuit camera footage captured the last moment of the 48-year-old woman as Marakis an armed knife-wielding Marakis  cherokee health park vytalize health mgaolo fitness tracker evans fitness club yoga joint petite yoga pants jackknife exercise williams sonoma slow cooking pursued her through an area of a hotel on the island.

 Marakis was in court with the public prosecutor. He charged Marakis with manslaughter. After he pleaded guilty to manslaughter, the judge ordered the Cretan remain in jail.

 Prior to his arrest, Marakis reportedly told his children that he murdered their mother in order to ensure their safety. “I was a good dad, I did it for you,” he was quoted in local media.

 Like many other victims of femicide, Nektaria had allegedly approached authorities to file a complaint about her former partner’s violent behaviour. Crete’s police have denied in a concise statement that any complaint had been filed in “any police station”.

 The murders not only increased pressure on the center-right government of the premier, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, but led to passionate calls for reforms to Greece’s penal code.

 There are demands for femicide to be classified as a distinct crime in order to stop perpetrators using legal loopholes in an attempt to obtain permissive sentences.

 Charalambos “Babis” Anagnostopoulos, the pilot of a helicopter who confessed to strangling his British-born wife, Caroline Crouch, has reportedly been reading legal books while in jail, waiting hawaiian bros usf health food trucks marco pizza bodhi fitness tf supplements spark yoga yoga tune up balls duck walk exercise cooking oil filter for the verdict in an effort to find legal regulations that could lower his sentence, according to media reports. For 37 days the UK-trained aviator kept up the charade that his wife had been bound and beaten by a group of vicious foreign burglars in their maisonette located in the Greek capital.

 But Athens’ supreme court prosecutor was on the case this week, instructing jurists to fast-track cases of domestic violence adopting a process that would allow suspects to be indicted and trial within 48 hours of the time they committed an offense.

 The program was described as groundbreaking for a criminal justice system which is not just notoriously slow , but also frequently is compared by legal experts to a relic of the 19th century.

 Maria Gavouneli (president of the Greek national Commission for Human Rights, and professor of International Law at Athens University) said, “It’s an important turning point.” “He has directed prosecutors across the country to be particularly attentive to cases of domestic violence and brought them back to the [legal] tool box.”

 Greek prosecutors would now be sarkeys fitness center lockout supplements ora supplements yoga girls mewing exercise snap fitness great salt plains health center what’s cooking movie advised to make use of all legal provisions in the criminal code when dealing with Femicides, said the UK-trained lawyer.

 “They will not just prosecute for murder but [will also] consider aggravating conditions into account. This is very important.

 “The Greek justice system has very slow speed. It’s completely broken.”

 The government’s campaign will be followed by other initiatives that will aim to communicate the message that women are equal to men.
