Tackling domestic violence in France: How to make the legal process more efficient?
Issued on: Modified:
As the French government announces new measures to fight domestic violence, we take a closer look at how victims are treated by the judicial system.

Our France 2 colleagues Sophie Brunn and Guillaume Beaufils investigate, with FRANCE 24's Catherine Viette.
