Likewise, the Attorney General referred to the importance of addressing problems that affect them, such as sexual and domestic violence, femicide, and also the conciliation sessions.

The aim is that citizens’ complaints be solved and avoid these cases from ending up on the shelves or the drawers of the offices in Valledupar. It also aims at reviewing each of these files and to establish criteria to provide training”, he stressed.
For its part, the Program for Crime Prevention of the Office of the Attorney General, Futuro Colombia carried out activities aimed at strengthening the development of investigations against high-impact crimes. Prevention workshops were also carried out with this population.

Today we are here again in Codazzi”, stressed the Attorney General Barbosa Delgado.
