Lamola urged victims of violence to report these crimes and break the silence on domestic violence.

“As the police we will inform victims of their rights and options: break the silence on domestic violence. We are committed to treat victims of domestic violence with sensitivity and care. Domestic violence is often thought to include only physically violence, but the conduct that constitutes domestic violence varies in nature and frequency,” said Lamola.
