Let us pay tribute to all women who have been victims of violence, and let us raise awareness in society through personal action about the need to protect them, Parliament Speaker Gordan Jandroković told members of parliament.

He called on all institutions to step up the punishment of those who commit violence against women.

The parliament observed a minute of silence at the incentive of MP Sandra Benčić of the opposition Green-Left Bloc.

We want to point to the alarming fact that every 15 minutes a woman is a victim of domestic violence, and today, every 15 minutes, alarms will sound in the parliament to show how often women are victims of violence, she said.
