She said the area which still needed
proper legislation was that of sexual

not an area which comprehensive leg-

Some 11,000 domestic violence applications are
made before the court each year, one third of which
is brought by men.
So said attorney and women's rights activist Lynette
Seebaran-Suite at the press briefing on the convention
for the elimination of all forms of violence of dis-
crimination against women to mark Human Rights
The event took place at The Professional Centre,
Wrightson Road, Port-of-Spain, yesterday.
However, not all of these applications involved
actual physical violence but had to do with emotional
or psychological violence.
"It is to say it is a one-way traffic in terms of the
domestic violence applications," Seebaran-Suite said.
She added that statistics from the Police Service's
Crime and Problem Analysis Branch (CAPA) showed
that approximately 24 women were killed as a result
of domestic violence in T&T yearly.
"So we are having on average two killings of women
a month as a result of domestic violence," Seebaran-
On the issue of how the police treated with domestic
violence cases, she said while progress had been made
in that area there was still a lot of work to be done.
She said instead of the victim being removed from
the home and placed elsewhere that should be done
instead to the perpetrator.
She added: "In terms of violence against women
we have made many gains but it is not a perfect sit-
uation. There has been a mature response but one
which needs serious tweaking.
"In terms of taking the perpetrator out of the home
instead of the victim that requires some serious thought
We have to make sure they do not do the 'tacking
back' after they have been taken out of the home
because we simply do not have sufficient police officers
to be guarding families in T&T."
She said the significant gain of the legislation was
that the police have been mandated to intervene in
situations of domestic violence.
"But their response is far from perfect and that is
the area which needs tweaking.
"The problem with domestic violence is that it
cannot be completely eliminated but it is something
we have to be constantly working on in terms of recre-
ating the outrage associated with domestic violence.
"We also have a problem which is the ultimate in
domestic violence which is death as women continued
