Burgos, the province with the most cases of gender violence, with twelve women victims of Extreme Risk

Twelve women victims of gender-based violence are considered Extreme Risk in Burgos, making it the province of Castilla y León with the most cases in this situation, which represents 31 percent of the 38 women in the Community who are considered as such . Active police protection for women victims of gender-based violence in Burgos reaches 668 women, 20.3 percent of the total number of cases discharged in Castilla y León, which is close to 3,300. Burgos, despite being the third most populous province in Castilla y León, is the second in number of women victims of violence in the Viogen system.

These data have been revealed today in Oña (Burgos), where the Government delegate in Castilla y León, Virginia Barcones has inaugurated the Equality Day that is celebrated in this town of Burgos, accompanied by the sub-delegate in Burgos, Pedro de la Fuente, and together with the first deputy mayor of Oña, Berta Tricio.

There, he has made an intervention referring to 'Gender violence. Prevention and protection', which was one of the topics to be discussed at this conference, in which two round tables were also held, one on 'Woman. Empowerment and the rural world' and another on 'The role of women in artistic expressions'.

During it, Barcones pointed out that gender-based violence is "the greatest attack on effective equality between men and women" and has asked the municipalities with Local Police that have not yet joined the Viogen agreement to sign these agreements "to to have information about the victims in their locality and to be directly involved in their protection”.

Along these lines, she recalled that in Spain, one in two women has suffered violence from a man. «1,144 women have been murdered by their partners or ex-partners in this country since 2003, 11 of them in the province of Burgos, which is the third with the most victims in Castilla y León, after León, with 14, and Valladolid, with 12 », he indicated.

He has also appealed to everyone's commitment to the victims of sexist violence, because the percentage of complaints filed by relatives or friends of the victims is very small. «We must get involved because the solution begins with the complaint. Of the 14 women murdered this year, in 10 cases there was no prior complaint and in the four cases where there was, it was filed by the victim », he said.

Virginia Barcones has also assured that, as the Government delegate in Castilla y León, "she will not stop insisting for a single moment before the State security forces and bodies that we must be able to make the victims feel heard and understood, respected and protected, especially when they take the step of filing a complaint.

On the other hand, the Civil Guard has just added the new Viogen equipment to the troops it already had in the nine provinces of the autonomous community. This significantly increases the number of specialized agents and material resources, with the aim of reinforcing actions in terms of assessing the risk that exists for a victim and progressing in the protection and care of the victim. In addition to allocating more troops exclusively for this task, training is promoted for Citizen Security patrols, since in most cases they are the first people to assist victims of gender violence.

Throughout the autonomous community there are 31 Viogen teams that are already in operation. 63 civil guards added to those already existing in the Women's Minor Teams (EMUME). In Burgos, these new teams have been deployed, in addition to the capital, in Aranda de Duero, Miranda de Ebro and Medina de Pomar, reports Ical.

At this time, there are already 50 municipalities in Castilla y León that have joined the Viogen system for monitoring cases of gender violence «for rapid, comprehensive and effective protection of victims. We are working to extend in all the municipalities that have Local Police agreements that mean the integration of these police forces in the system, "explained Barcones.

The city of Burgos, Miranda de Ebro and Aranda de Duero are the only three municipalities in the province that have signed this agreement.

Another of the actions to protect women against sexist violence that includes the province of Burgos, to which Barcones has referred, is the campaign 'You don't walk alone. Camino de Santiago free of sexist violence. "It is a campaign that has been added to the already existing Prevention and Security Plan of the National Police and the 'Guardians of the Road' Plan of the Civil Guard, and which is aimed at pilgrims, to make them aware of the specific resources put in place. available to women and that they can use in the event that they suffer any type of violence. We have taken into account the increase in the number of female pilgrims who decide to complete the Camino de Santiago alone," he explained.

Finally, the representative of the Government of Spain in Castilla y León, has reviewed the tools made available to victims of gender violence, such as the 016 telephone number; the Alertcops application or the Atenpro or 'Cometa' systems, for telematic control of the measures and penalties prohibiting approaching the victim.
