The Portuguese government is to create a working group to study the possibility of including a family magistrate in the court panels hearing parental responsibilities, domestic violence and abuse.

Government studies a higher level of specialisation in courts

 

At a press conference after a cabinet meeting, the minister of the presidency, Mariana Vieira da Silva, stressed that the intention “is not to create a court specialised in domestic violence.”

 

The goal of the working group will be “to study whether it is possible, within the framework of the constitution, and whether it is effective […] to establish a court panel that, in addition to a criminal law judge, also includes a family magistrate.”

 

The possibility of a solution enabling unification in the same court, of mixed competence, of the decision in those specific matters, arises following a recommendation of the Council of Europe, she said.

 

The cabinet meeting approved a set of recommendations that are to be analysed by a multidisciplinary technical team to present, within three months, a proposal with concrete measures to reinforce prevention and fight against violence towards women and domestic violence.
