The crackdown on gender violence is nowadays top-priority in Cuba, local authorities ratified in a meeting called by the National Assembly of People’s Power (ANPP).

The meeting was organized by the Commission for Attention to Children, Youth and Equal Rights of Women of the Parliament, and was attended by representatives of the Federation of Cuban Women (FMC), the Ministries of Justice (MINJUST) and Interior (MININT).

According to Granma newspaper, the representatives harped on the need to improve mechanisms of action against gender violence, in keeping with Cuba’s zero-tolerance political will.

The President of the ANPP’s Constitutional and Legal Affairs Commission, Jose Luis Toledo Santander, assured that Cuba has the necessary judicial instruments to respond and prevent gender violence.
