|Type of Measure||Violence against women > Legislation|
|Form of Violence||Sexual violence|
The law governing sexual offences was revised in 2011 to enhance the legal protection of victims and improve the practical measures against violence against women and children as well as domestic violence. Notably, the catalogue of offences that are prosecuted “ex officio” was expanded to dangerous threats against close family members, stalking, rape or sexual assault in marriages and partnerships. The revision also strengthened victims’ rights in criminal proceed-ings.
