FEATURE-Uzbek domestic abuse victims feel judged, trapped …

By Agnieszka Pikulicka-Wilczewska

TASHKENT, Nov 27 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – A week after they exchanged vows, Nigora’s husband started beating her. Three years after leaving him, she still gets blamed for the break-up – even the Uzbek justice system thinks she should give the marriage another try.

A law passed last year criminalised domestic violence in Uzbekistan, but women’s campaigners say protecting victims could take time in a country where abused women are often urged to stick it out or find a solution within the family.

“Everyone has been judging me. My neighbours and relatives say I made a mistake by leaving. They say the first 10 years of marriage are usually like this and called me impatient,” said Nigora, 28, whose name has been changed to protect her identity.

She went against the advice of relatives and friends and left her husband after 18 months – her dreams of

Uzbek domestic abuse victims feel judged, trapped despite new law

‘I feel like I won my first Supreme Court case’

Exuding sheer intellect, piercing passion and tenacity, Norman Manley Law School student Chevant Hamilton is already impacting the nation, with hopes of changing the world.

As we engage this pandemic, for many of us, the last thing on our minds would be a competition. However, the ardent legal savant decided to compete in the Intellectual Property Caribbean Association’s (IPCA) essay competition – and he won!

“I decided to enter the essay competition because I was inherently interested in intellectual property [IP] law,” Hamilton told the Jamaica Observer. “I also wanted to enter a competition at the law school. Receiving the congratulations from well-wishers, family and friends made me feel as if I had won my first case in the Supreme Court. It was a very exhilarating feeling.”

The IPCA was established to create a platform where legal practitioners could develop greater communication and collaboration on intellectual property matters

Never mind the quality, feel the distance?

The ‘right’ for grandchildren to have the opportunity to see their grandparents may be a new provision available through a court near you, soon. Let’s leave the word ‘right’ for now but it isn’t before time because grandparents have a huge amount to offer children and it is a pity that they have to fight so hard to maintain the contact from which children benefit so much – usually. Of course, there are exceptions, but these must be outweighed by the times when relationships blossom and add so much to the welfare of children. To be cut off from that contact because of the death of one parent or vitriolic separation and divorce of offspring risks visiting further pain when the maintenance of contact could add so much to the benefit for all concerned.                                                                                

The reports last week were full of hope (again, with a few exceptions) that changes in
