The Office of the Attorney General is working on a digital strategy that is based on an initiative promoted by the Attorney General, Francisco Barbosa, so that the entity does not restrict itself to receive complaints and investigate, but to develop a synergy in prevention matters.
In commemoration of the International Day for the Eradication of Violence against Women, the Office of the Attorney General launches the campaing ‘No se atreva’ (Don´t dare). A prevention strategy that aims to expand the channels to assist women who are victims of any type of aggression and to strengthen the investigation tools about behaviors that threaten them.
“The Attorney General, Francisco Barbosa Delgado, and I have strengthened the prioritization policy on investigations related to crimes that affect women due to their condition, guaranteeing them the protection of their rights and especially to prevent femicides by identifying risks and activating the assistance channels”, emphasized the Deputy Attorney General Martha Janeth Mancera.
The Office of the Attorney General considered as a priority, in the Strategic Direction 2020-2024, the fight against gender-based violence. In this sense, in the last 9 months the institution has achieved 94% of progress in the clarification of femicides in the country, and in 16 Departments the average reached 100%. The Deputy Attorney General Mancera said “we continue working unceasingly to administer law.”
Likewise, an investigative strategy was launched to focus capacities and provide effective responses in cases of sexual and domestic violence.
“From now on, with our campaign “No se Atreva”, we want to send a clear message to Colombia: Women are a priority for the Office of the Attorney General and this Office is with us,” stressed the Deputy Attorney General at the strategy launch.
The Office of the Attorney General is producing results.
