New laws show extent of family violence

From The Panel, 4:07 pm on 5 July 2019

Police file an average of 33 strangulation charges before the court every week. Just one statistic that highlights the shocking stage of family violence in New Zealand.

These stats have come to light since the new strangulation offence was introduced last December. We speak to Jane Drumm from domestic violence charity Shine about the new laws.
