Putting a stop to gender violence

taller-estudiants1The social welfare department of the Consell de Formentera invited year four students at the island's high school, IES Marc Ferrer, to take part in a morning gathering aimed at preventing gender violence. The exercise in improv theatre was led by the ‘Teatre de xoc’ theatre troupe, and was conceived as a more direct, light-hearted and theatre-based approach to reinforcing coeducational and prevention-oriented efforts already under way at the school.

Peace court relocates

jutjat-de-pau1The Consell de Formentera reports that the offices of the Justice of the Peace, or Jutjat de Pau, have been moved to the Department of Social Welfare (Venda des Brolls, 53, Sant Francesc). Regular hours are 9.00am to 1.30pm, though the court offers expanded hours as necessary.

The services historically available at the peace court will remain unchanged, like settlements, handling of notices, citations, requisitions and summons, not to mention delegating specific tasks to third parties, as in the cases of letters rogatory from other courts or tribunals in civil and penal cases. The office also serves as a Civil Registry.
