Amnesty International is concerned about the widespread impunity of perpetrators of domestic violence in Georgia; insufficient measures and services to protect the victims of domestic violence; the absence of a functioning cross-referral system with regard to domestic violence cases between different agencies; the lack of mandatory government training programmes for police, procurators, judges and medical staff; and the failure to date by key players and the courts to record cases of domestic violence in a systematic manner and to create reliable and comprehensive statistics disaggregated by sex and indicating the relationship between victim and perpetrator.
