Senate passes new bill - Female genital mutilation is now a serious offence

 

The house of Senate on Tuesday 5 May, 2015, passed Violence against Persons (Prohibition) Bill which seeks to prohibit female circumcision or genital cutting, forceful ejection from home and harmful widowhood practices. The bill also prohibits abandonment of spouse, children and other dependents without sustenance, battery and harmful traditional practices.

The Bill which was sponsored by the Leader of the Senate, Victor Ndoma-Egba, also intended to get rid of Violence in private and public life and provide maximum protection and effective remedies for victims of violence and punishment of offenders.


The bill equally prohibits economic abuse, forced isolation and separation from family and friends, substance attack, depriving persons of their liberty, incest, indecent exposure, among others. In his remarks, Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, who presided at the session, said that the passage of the bill would provide adequate protection for the vulnerable in the society and punish those who take advantage of them.

He commended the senators and other stakeholders for their efforts in ensuring that the bill was passed, adding that it was a good step in the fight against violence in the society.

"The primary responsibility of government is to protect lives and property and as a responsible arm of government, our primary responsibility is to enact laws that will not only protect our people, but also protect their property".
 
“Today, we have discharged one of our responsibilities to the vulnerable in terms of violence. Congratulations for this achievement,’’ he said.

40 migrants drowned in latest Mediterranean shipwreck

A boat crowded with migrants deflated and foundered in the Mediterranean, and up to 40 people apparently drowned before an approaching merchant ship could save them. This comes after a overloaded vessel capsized during a rescue attempt last month, drowning at least 700 people near the Libyan coast.

According to international aid organization, Save the Children, survivors from the incident said they were 137 onboard the boat and as they got to Sicily in Italy, their boat deflated. Some of the boat occupants who could not swim, fell into the sea and drowned.

One of the survivors, Astoy Fall Dia from Senegal, told AP she managed to survive because she knew how to swim and held on to the dinghy(boat).

"There was the big ship there and they threw down ropes, someone grabbed on to the rope, all the other people started pushing to try to save themselves but then people started falling in the water."she said
No less than 1,829 people have died so far this year trying to cross the Mediterranean.
