State must assume responsibility for orphans of victims of femicide: Rocío Corona


The deputy Rocío Corona Nakamura of the PVEM, proposed reforms so that the National System of the DIF or the systems of the federative entities, in coordination with the Protection Attorneys, adopt measures that guarantee education, health and food to minors orphaned by femicide.

The legislator’s proposal modifies articles 26, 47, 48 and 49 of the General Law on the Rights of Children and Adolescents.

In a statement, he explained that the children and adolescents who were orphaned due to the femicide of their mother must have the security of full enjoyment and satisfaction of their food, educational, physical and emotional health rights, until they fulfill the majority old.

“The issue is not minor and can become a snowball, because it is about the daughters and sons, often minors, who remain orphaned, under a systematic scheme of re-victimization for the loss and violent murder of their mothers, and they also suffer from the indifference of the authorities of this country”, warned Corona Nakamura.

The initiative indicates that legislators have a pending co-responsibility with the three levels of government to help provide security to the population in general, but also to promote reporting and protect direct or indirect victims of crimes.

The number of femicides has been increasing in the country, as we saw in 2021, where according to data from the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System (SESNSP) the death of one thousand six women was recorded; In addition to another 2,747 murders, they were classified as “intentional homicides”, largely due to negligence and the lack of a gender perspective in the investigation and judicial process, he added.

The legislator added that only between 20 and 25 percent of the murders are classified as gender-based violence, a situation to which is added the social and institutional lack of interest that makes the victims invisible, “a childhood that is totally abandoned and we do not have a reliable official census”.
