This week, EUPOL COPPS facilitated a study trip to Jordan for 15 Palestinian prosecutors specialized in dealing with crimes against women and children.
The participants started the trip with a visit to Family Protection Department in Amman, a ‘one stop shop’ facility to encourage the victims of domestic violence to come forward and file complaints to the police, give a statement, go through medical checks and get support and counseling, sparing them the effort to go to several locations to complete their complaint.
The visit was followed by training by a pathologist, the first appointed female pathologist in Jordan, on the performance of physical examination of victims and reports and testimony in court by pathologists.
The attendees received training on Human Rights by an expert from Egypt. During the two days of training on Human Rights, the participants discussed important issues such as Fair Trial, international treaties and the endorsement of the treaties and agreements in the legal national system.
The workshop in Jordan was concluded with a visit to the Cassation Court and to The Jordan River Foundation, Queen Rania Family and Child Center. The non-profit centre provides families a decent life and prevent families from committing violence against children.
