Women victims of domestic violence will also come and testify. Like Josiane who suffered the blows from her partner for eight years. “At the start, it was all rosy, like always. And it got worse, alcohol helping as is often the case. I found myself pregnant with a little boy and when my son was six the violence got to one end so I left because I was threatened with a gun.”she explains in the show.
Despite the separation, her ex-partner is still threatening towards her. “We tried to go to the family court judge. He had warned his lawyer that I would not have time to climb the stairs because I would be dead before then., adds the woman. At the end of this hearing, to which he did not appear, the man was ordered to leave Josiane’s home. For six months, she had no further news from him. “And in January 2005, he came to the house and shot me four times, at point blank range, I took two bullets in the arm and two bullets in the stomach”, she says. Luckily, at that time, his son was at school but above all a friend was in the house and immediately called the police and firefighters. Which will certainly save Josiane’s life.
