They knew of the abuse and the threats, which did not find understanding in the police forces, but rather ridicule and contempt. To complete the terrible picture, three of the four children of one of the victims also lost their lives at the hands of the aggressor. By now there are 15 dead, more than last year, but maybe 2019 even raise this bloody statistic.

From the jungle, in the region of San Martín, the woman was transferred to a hospital in Tarapoto, where he was admitted in intensive care. “It was impossible to transfer her to Lima,” said the director of the health center, Guadalupe Mamani. The Public Ministry has accused Leoncio Daza, of 50 years, by femicide and severe injuries, and has requested the Judiciary to 18 months of preventive detention while they continue the investigation.

Just 24 hours later, Catty Rivers Alfaro, 40, received several gunshots that took her out of the dream to move it to the death. The woman slept in his stall at a christmas fair in Chanchamayo, in Junin region in the central jungle. Those who knew her told that she was suffering constant threats by Edward Grimaldo Ramos Chuquimantari, the father of her four children, reported the Press Chanchamayo. She had denounced by psychological violence in August 2018.

The victim's mother, Gisela Alfaro, told Radioprogramas that the police did not pay attention to the case. “Mom, my husband threatens to kill me, I've gone to the National Police and not ignore me.

The sinister statistics of these last days is completed with the quadruple murder of Jessica Tejada and three of their four children. The assailant, John Huriapata, he killed her to death and then set fire to the house where were also killed three children, two were daughters of the criminal.

The Association of peruvian women affected by Forced Sterilizations (AMPAEF) rejected this Friday in a press release, the statements of Revilla: “His words are unaware of a problem so serious and widespread of human rights in our country.” “We demand the Government, and in particular the sector of Justice and Human Rights, that articulates with the Ministry of Women and Vulnerable Populations, an effective policy of prevention and of truth, justice and reparation for the victims and survivors of feminicide”, adds the statement.

in view of the criticism of the Government for the increase of crimes of machismo, in a press conference, the president of the Council of Ministers, Vicente, Zeballos, said Friday night that the government has provided $ 170 million “in additional to combat violence against women”. Despite the 164 femicides registered in Peru this year and more than 330 attempts, according to information from the National Penitentiary Institute (INPE), only 92 people have been admitted to prison for these crimes, y136 per attempt.
