The alleged femicide of María Belén Bernal arrives in Ecuador

Cáceres, the main suspect, will appear on Monday at the Prosecutor's Office for a psychological and family environment evaluation after being arrested on December 30 in Colombia, where he remained a fugitive from Ecuadorian justice for three months.

Relatives of the victim and women's rights organizations called to gather outside the judicial institution to supervise the process and demand justice for the 34-year-old lawyer, local media reported.

The former lieutenant of the Ecuadorian Police is serving preventive detention in the La Roca maximum security prison, located in the coastal city of Guayaquil and will be transferred to Quito to appear before justice.

María Belén Bernal disappeared on Sunday, September 11, after visiting her husband, then Lieutenant Cáceres, at the Higher Police School and her body was found days later with signs of violence.

Bernal's case brought to light questions about Ecuadorian social policy, the training of uniformed officers and the situation of gender violence in the Andean country, where in 2022 there were more than 270 femicides until November alone, according to statistics from social organizations. .
