song Description:

Non-fatal strangulation often leaves no marks but it can deprive its victims of oxygen and cause lasting physical and psychological damage. Last year the Law Commission recommended to Parliament that to help prevent family violence strangulation should be a separate, specific crime. The Minister of Justice has just introduced into Parliament the Family and Whānau Violence Legislation Bill which includes an offence of non-fatal strangulation. We talked to Dr Ang Jury, the chief executive of Women's Refuge about the women who have been held up against a wall by their throat until they could not breathe.
