Bill creates secret list of protected persons

The legislature has passed for the first time a domestic violence bill that creates a secret list of persons who have been placed under an order of protection.

Typically these would be individuals who report that they are victims of aggression. The names would stay on the confidencial list for five years in order to help judges and Poder Judicial employees deal with domestic violence cases, according to a summary of what was passed Tuesday.

The law also forbids the filing of photographs of violators who are minors.
