“When it comes to psychological violence, specialized opinions are required. We have a group of psychologists in this matter, in addition to those who are assigned to the justice centers for women, “he stressed.

He recalled that this year there are 18 femicides in the state, of which three of the cases have been prosecuted, while in 2020 there were 23 events.

He highlighted that the regions with the highest incidence are in the municipalities with the highest population, which are located in the Laguna, the South region and the Center.

He added that due to the above, about eight thousand protection measures have been issued so far this year, corresponding to almost 90% of the complaints.

He stressed that there are few sentences, because these crimes allow alternate exits.

“The new criminal justice system is made to privilege alternative exits rather than a conviction or acquittal, where in many cases there are reparatory agreements,” he said.
