Kuwait, Feb.17 (BNA): A Supreme Council for Women (SCW) delegation paid a visit to Kuwait to discuss ways of exchanging expertise and coordinating activities and programmes.
The SCW General-Secretariat delegation included director-general for administrative and media affairs Ezzeddine Almoayyed and legal advisor Dr. Mohammed Walid Al-Masri.
The SCW officials held a meeting with the Kuwaiti Cabinet-affiliated Women’s Affairs Committee which updated them on family-only courts and domestic settlement centres which aim to protect families from violence.
Similar family-only judicial panels are also being established in Bahrain following a royal order which was issued by His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa last November.
The delegation paid visits to the Family Consultative Directorates, the Family Fund and the domestic settled centre. They also met Justice Ministry Assistant-Undersecretary for Palace of Justice Affairs.
