Judiciary on duty during festive season to tackle GBV cases

The judiciary will be on standby to deal with any cases of violence, especially gender-based violence during the festive season.
Reported domestic and gender-based violence cases are on the increase during the festive season. This is mainly attributed to the abuse of alcohol and drugs.
It is against this background that the Namibian Police Force and the Ministry of Justice make services to victims of domestic and gender-based violence throughout the festive season available.
