Reading Time: 1 minute

Italian Deputy Premier and Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said on Monday that he was proposing the introduction a new system under which reports of stalking and violence on women would be given ‘red-rating’ priority status.

“At the earliest cabinet meeting possible I will present a proposal so that women are defended with a red rating in (investigating) magistrates’ probes so that reports of stalking and violence on women do not end up in last place,” Salvini said.

ANSA reported that there has been a spate of shocking femicides – cases in which women are murdered, usually by their current or former partners – in Italy in recent years.
