레바논 의회에서는 가정폭력을 범죄로 인정하는  법안을 통과시켰다고 afp가 보도했다.

이 번 법안 통과는 시민 단체의 몇 년간의 캠페인 끝에 나온 것으로 전통적으로 레바논은 종교, 문화적 요인으로 여성과 어린이가 구타를 당하는 가정폭력이 심각하다.

이 법안에 대해 뉴욕에 본부를 둔 "휴먼라이프워치'는 여성에 대한 완전한 보호가 되지 않음을 지적했다.

이번 법에 대해 레바논 여성단체들은 "레바논 여성인권에 큰 역활을 할 것이며, 우리는 이 법안을 자랑스럽게 생각한다고 말했다. 


Lebanon Makes Domestic Violence a Criminal Offense

Lebanon passes a law making domestic violence a criminal offense, days after man sentenced to death over killing his wife.

Lebanon's parliament on Tuesday passed a law makingdomestic violence a criminal offense, reported AFP.

The move comes after a years-long campaign by civil society groups in a sectarian Arab country steeped in conservativism.

Large sectors of Lebanese society have traditionally regarded beatings of women and children as religiously and socially acceptable.

New York-based Human Rights Watch described the bill as "historic," but pointed to gaps which did not ensure full protection for women.

For its part, leading Lebanese women's rights organization Kafa was critical of the law in its current form.

The law fails to specifically enshrine protection for women, said Kafa, adding that the law used religious terminology in place of rights-based terms.

Ghassan Mkhayber, an MP who played a key role in lobbying for the law, told AFP, "It is a big step forward in protecting women, we should be proud. We now have a law that provides effective protection for women...”

"It's not the ideal text, but it's a first step," Mkhayber said, while stressing that the law must now be enforced.

The new law was passed just days after a Lebanese judge handed down a death sentence to a man accused of beating his wife to death with a pressure cooker, in an unprecedented verdict that was hailed as a breakthrough in Lebanon's struggle with domestic violence.

Mohammed Adnan al-Nhaily was accused of premeditated murder in "violently and viciously" beating his 34-year-old schoolteacher wife Manal Assi to death on February 8.

AFP noted that the law passed after a Kafa-led campaign which saw thousands of demonstrators take to the streets of Beirut on March 8, International Women's Day.

The demonstration came after several women died allegedly from beatings by their husbands.

Women's rights has been a weak point in the Arab world; a report last November found Egypt to be the worst women's rights abuser in the Arab world. A UN report in April found that 99.3% of Egyptian women and girls had been sexually harassed.

Another Arab country notorious for its violations of human rights and specifically those of women is Saudi Arabia.

The kingdom employs religious police whose job is to enforce Islamic Sharia law, and women are forbidden from driving in the kingdom.

Even the Saudi king has been accused of violating the rights of his own daughters, as allegations recently submitted to the UN human rights office claimed that several of his daughters have been held for the past 13 years in the royal compound in Jeddah.
