Video Targeting Domestic Violence Launched

A new video against domestic violence, co-produced by the Solomon Islands Police Force and RAMSI's Participating Police Force, was screened for the first time during a breakfast hosted by RAMSI and other local sponsors.

Officially launching the video, the Secretary to Cabinet Ruth Liloqula said it was important for the community to work together to eradicate domestic violence.

"We need to give back women the rights they enjoyed at birth to live free of fear and without violence," Ms Liloqula said.

The breakfast was attended by women from Solomon Island NGO's, churches, diplomatic missions, media & business sectors and senior women in government and the public service including the Governor General's wife, Lade Alice Waena and the Prime Minister's wife, Doris Sikua.

They were hosted by senior women from RAMSI participating countries including from the military, police and civilian arms of RAMSI.

It was co-sponsored by RAMSI with the Australian High Commission, New Zealand High Commission, GPPOL, Solomon Telekom, National Provident Fund and the Mendana Kitano Hotel.
