Of course, Zaruhi’s case was not the only one, but it was  fatal,  as it contributed to raising the phenomenon of domestic violence, illustration of  DV cases hidden in our society  by  mass media , awareness raising  for the citizens of the phenomenon  of domestic violence. After the incident, 7 companies merged and formed “The  Coalition to stop Violence against Women,” which called for a fair trial and prevention of  such cases and the adoption of  the  preventive legislation of  domestic  violence. Although the phenomenon of domestic violence remains one of the key issues in the country, however, is not regulated by law.
