Draft bills for protection of women & children, criminalizing sexual harassment


MP Enaya Ezzeddine, member of the Development and Liberation Bloc, disclosed in a television statement that the Woman and Child Parliamentary Committee has referred to the Legislature a number of draft laws to protect women and children and criminalize sexual harassment. Ezzeddine pointed to the Domestic Violence Law under study by the Administration and Justice Committee, hoping said proposals will reach the Parliament’s General Assembly. She touched on the issue of granting citizenship to children of Lebanese mothers married to non-Lebanese, looking forward to addressing the subject in light of justice and human rights away from illusionary and unfounded justifications or intimidation. Ezzeddine mentioned several draft bills submitted by the Woman and Child Committee to the end of achieving social justice, including amendments related to social security. (Al Akhbar, July 16, 2020)
