  • UN: A Way to Go - Executive Summary and Recommendations in Dari, December 2013

    Reporting on the period October 2012 to September 2013, UNAMA find an increase in the reported incidences of violence against women (650, up from 470 in the same period of 2012).  However, there has been a decrease in the percentage of prosecutors using the EVAW law in their cases and courts using it in their decisions.  UNAMA find that whilst progress has been made in implementing the law, gaps continue and violence against women remains under-reported in large parts of the country.  In addition, wrongful prosecution and imprisonment of women for fleeing home, often to escape violence, continues despite directives from the Supreme Court and Attorney General to prohibit this.
