“There is a lot of discrimination and violence; that’s the indication that is happening out there. But, though the figures are shocking, it is still important to note that actually women, and girls and children are accessing justice. They actually know where to go and report and it’s not just to us but also the police.”

342 cases were reported in Suva, 141 cases reported in Nadi, 95 in Ba, 46 in Labasa and 18 in Rakiraki.

The statistics, released by FWCC this morning also revealed 37 child abuse cases during that period.

There were a total of 12 sexual harassment cases and 293 reports were classified as other cases.

Ali says there are still a lot of unreported cases of domestic violence.
