Network for preventing and combating violence against women is an informal structure, without legal personality, which brings together a total of 15 organizations active in promoting women’s rights, the protection of victims of gender violence and the fight against discrimination based on gender. It aims to introduce emergency protective order, to advocacate and harmonize legislation, to promote education programs for domestic abusers,to develop information and awareness campaigns etc.
The campaign to introduce emergency protection order aims to amending the legislation (Law 25/2012), so emergency protection order can be issued within 24 or 48 hours by a judge specially appointed for this responsibility, which can judge the severity and degree of danger of the situation based on a request from the police, the victim or the prosecutor. Emergency Protective Order is provisional and must be valid until the issuance of other legal protections.
