Following is the post of the President of the Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou on Facebook about gender-based violence and murder.

“Recent incidents of gender-based violence and murder have left us all speechless and shocked. They cause us deep disgust and even deeper sadness. At the same time, however, they raise serious concerns about the extent of these phenomena in our country. Beyond denunciation, beyond punishment, it is necessary to think, once again, of the causes that cause them and to work resolutely towards their elimination. And this can be done only with timely preventive interventions, in the family, at school, in the workplace. With the education from the most tender age, with the awareness within the educational structures, with the zero tolerance even in low-intensity violence, whenever and wherever it is perceived. It will take time and a great deal of effort to break down stereotypes that stem from gender inequality and that create collective tolerance for morally and criminally heinous acts. “But we must not allow a culture of violence to prevail, nor can we allow inequality, abuse and fear to prevail in family and personal relationships.”
