First names added to Guam domestic violence register

Updated 9 April 2014, 9:47 AEST

The Attorney-General in Guam says the US territory's decision to adopt a register of repeat family violence offenders sends a signal to some mainland American states to take the whole issue of domestic violence more seriously.

It's taken three years to go live with the register since it was approved by legislators, mainly because of compliance and software issues, but now the first names are on the list, which has been backdated.

Presenter: Richard Ewart

Speaker: Leonardo Rapadas, Attorney-General, Guam
