Appreciating UNAMA’s cooperation, the Policy and Technical Deputy Minister said, “Ministry of Women’s Affairs has carried out effective activities to advocate and trial violators of violence against women, but there are still some challenges that women face and in some places of Afghanistan, influential figures prevent trialing of criminals of violence against women and ensuring justice. In order to provide more support to the victims of violence, she also pointed to amendments in the Law on Elimination of Violence against Women in coming days.
