Facing the Law, Bruised

Abstract


For the first time, the Lebanese police began processing reported crimes on a computer data-base system in 1994. The first comprehensive statistics were
released in 1995, The information in the data-base can be accessed by date, age, gender, location, and every type of crime recognized by Lebanese criminal law, including the latest to have entered the books. e.g., the buying and selling of children. a criminal activity that has flourished during and after the war. We now know how many rapes of virgins were reported. but we still do not know how many
women have been battered by their husbands.
