The actions of the Witness and Victim Protection Agency to take measures to provide protection for women victims of violence still find obstacles where in the legal process. Often cases of violence against women victims are considered not to meet the elements of criminal acts, therefore, the legal process cannot be continued, even often the victim actually gets a reply from the perpetrator such as a counter-report, there needs to be a criminal law policy that provides legal protection for women as witnesses and victims of violence.
