In 2019, the office of the Ombudsman increased the number of  complaints regarding domestic violence

ArmInfo.In 2019, the number of complaints about domestic violence increased in the office of the Ombudsman of Armenia. This was reported by the press service of the  Ombudsman.

According to the source, in 2019, about 100 complaints were received,  which is twice as practical as in 2018. Typically, these complaints  relate to violence by men against their wives.

Employees of the Office of the Human Rights Defender of Armenia  believe that the increase in complaints is related to the campaign  conducted by the Ombudsman's office to inform about the legal  possibilities of protection against domestic violence.

It should be noted that speaking in December to students of the  Russian-Armenian (Slavic) University regarding the ratification of  the Istanbul Convention by the Parliament, Armenian Ombudsman Arman  Tatoyan expressed the idea that the problem of domestic violence in  the country will be difficult to solve, since it is related to the  traditions and way of life of the people, and as long as the country  is in such difficult socio-economic conditions, domestic violence  will not disappear. <Our task is not to eradicate domestic violence  as such by force, but to develop mechanisms that are used to prevent  such misconduct> - he noted.

According to police statistics, in the 10 months of 2019, 2756 cases  of domestic violence were registered in Armenia, however, among the  1760 registered rapists, 10% are women.
