Mine Atlı: Femicide must be clarified
KAYAD Project Coordinator Mine Atlı spoke to Kıbrıs Postası; “Female murders must be brought to light,” she said.
After the mystery of the Dam Thi Hop femicide was resolved by recording the father-son fight, Mine Atlı, Project Coordinator of the Association for Support to Life from Women (KAYAD), said in a statement to the Kıbrıs Postası, that femicides should be clarified.
“THE NUMBER OF FEMALE IS UNKNOWN”
Underlining that the number of femicides in the north of Cyprus is unknown, Atlı stated that the reason for this was that the perpetrator either killed himself or killed the witnesses. She touched on the importance of the Domestic Violence Act.
“A WOMAN WAS NOT KILLED BY A WOMAN”
Stating, “Never in this country, a woman has been killed by a woman,” Atlı said that investigations of femicides should be conducted in a different way. Stating that they started a project as KAYAD, Atlı requested that known stories be told to them anonymously.
