Update: 3:17PM A FIVE-day workshop on human rights, organised by the Fiji Womens Crisis Centre, aims to better equip police officers and other Government participants with better knowledge of human rights.

The 40 police participants will also learn about gender relations and how this relates to violence against women and girls.

The workshop will also increase their skills in appropriate response to female victims reporting gender-based violence.

In these five days, officers will learn in-depth about the Domestic Violence Decree, Crimes Decree and Child Welfare Decree.
