Uzbekistan to create register of violence perpetrators and to develop support system for harassment victims

AKIPRESS.COM - The internal affairs bodies of Uzbekistan will introduce a register of citizens who have committed or are inclined to commit violence from January 1, 2025. Those included in the register will be subject to correctional work, with the involvement of psychology inspectors from the National Guard, according to the decree of the President on improving social services for harassment and violence victims.

Starting June 1, Inson Centers will provide social and legal services to victims of harassment and violence without requesting protection orders. Incidents of harassment and violence against women will be registered by law enforcement upon receiving calls to the emergency hotline.

Within 24 hours of identifying a case of harassment or violence or a threat thereof, the perpetrator will be interviewed in the presence of a women's rights activist and a community prevention officer, and a  protection order will be issued for the victim by the prevention officer. 

In addition, women and their children who have suffered harassment and violence will be accommodated in emergency rooms at central hospitals. 24-hour primary care rooms will be established in emergency departments in Jizzakh, Navoi, and Khorezm regions from June 1, and in all other regions from October 1. Completed protection orders and victim information will be transmitted to the Inson centers via the Unified National Social Protection system in real time.

To provide rehabilitation services for women affected by harassment and violence, temporary shelters are being arranged in the regional centers of the Republican Centre for Rehabilitation and Adaptation of Women.
