At the end of a corridor, a man has been in police custody in Barberey-Saint-Sulpice (Aude) for 48 hours. Alerted by his wife, the gendarmerie arrested him for violence. He is separated from his family until he finds a protection solution. “The man will be staying with a friend. But we still have this concern of how to separate in a couple with limited emergency accommodation places during this period“explains Lieutenant Nathaniel Daux, commander of the Barberey brigade committee.
For some people, it is difficult to call the police and report violent behavior with the confinement linked to the Covid-19 epidemic. At the Women's and Family Rights Information Center, calls are seen to drop by almost 30%. Proximity between spouses due to confinement is in question. To help the victims, new resources are made available. With a simple SMS, the 114 allows you to give the alert.
