(ANSA) - BRUXELLES, 15 MAR - Two new EU funded projects in Tunisia have been announced today, on preventing gender violence and improving the performance of the justice sector in the area of juvenile delinquency.

The first project is a grant contract of 550.000 euros aimed at preventing violence based on gender and on helping the victims of gender violence in the North-East of Tunisia, in the governorates of El-Kef, Jendouba and Beja by preparing advisors to train specialised staff dealing with this problem and providing legal, psychological and socio-medical support to the victims. The three-years project will be implemented by a Spanish NGO (Fundacion CIDEAL de Cooperacion y Investigacion).

Another action worth 1.8 million euros will be implemented by UNICEF, covering the implementation of the action related to juvenile justice within the framework of the EU-Tunisia cooperation programme of support to the justice sector adopted last year. This specific action with UNICEF is designed to ensure the protection of young delinquents and to provide them with support during the judicial procedures and their detention until their reintegration into the society and is part of a broader program to reinforce the independence and professionalism in the justice sector.
