Administrative court members trained on violence against women case management

UNFPA and the National Council for women (NCW) continue to capacitate relevant stakeholders on international and national guidelines on the management of gender-based violence cases. Within this context, a training was held to build the capacities of 14 female members of the Administrative Courts on Violence against Women (VAW) case management.

The training took place at the Ministry of Justice in December as part of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, running from November 25 to December 10.

Judge Ahmed El-Naggar, Legal Expert at the National Council for Women’s GBV Coordination Unit, led the technical presentation on the national legislative framework criminalizing all forms of VAW and the role of criminal justice in combating VAW.

Through the GBV Coordination Unit established by UNFPA at the National Council for Women, UNFPA carries out capacity-building workshops on international and national guidelines to address VAW cases for criminal justice practitioners (including public prosecutors and judges), medical service providers and forensic doctors from the National Forensic Authority.
