Awareness on dealing with victims of sexual harassment

16-4-2018

The General Directorate of the Internal Security Forces and Abaad organization jointly organized on Saturday an awareness activity around a memorandum on “How to receive and treat victims of sexual harassment and human trafficking at ISF centers”. The activity included a parade by an ISF cycling squad, the Harley Davidsons Ladies Club and Lebanon Bikers from Ain Mreiseh neighborhood of Beirut through two awareness checkpoints at the National Museum and Chevrolet roundabout areas to finally reach the Memorial of the women victims of domestic violence in Baabda suburb of Beirut. During their tour, the cyclists distributed leaflets among passers to familiarize the above memo. Towards the end of the activity, the head of the PR division at ISF, Colonel Joseph Musallam, said: “When the ISF set its priorities for the protection of freedoms and human rights, it took into consideration the crimes committed against women,” and stressed the need to rethink some of the outdated inherited customs that impede the realization of women’s rights. Abaad director, Ghida Anani, for her part, pointed out that the memo is a sharp translation of ISF commitment to the file of domestic violence and violence against women and girls.
