Caribbean cardinal decries violence against women
Catholic World News - July 26, 2012
The Dominican Republic’s leading prelate has denounced the “international scandal” of violence against women in the Caribbean nation. An estimated 1,000 women have been murdered there in the past five years, and only 4% of the 62,000 reported cases of violence against women went to trial in 2010.
Cardinal Nicolás López Rodríguez’s remarks came during a two-hour meeting with the nation’s president.
