Valladolid, (EFE).- A thousand people have gathered this Sunday in the Plaza Mayor of Valladolid to show their revulsion for the sexist murder of Paloma, 45, and her daughter India, 8, on January 23, allegedly committed by the mother’s partner.
And they demand maximum compliance with the sentences for the alleged murderer, the mother’s partner, and a public record of the abusers.
The act, convened by the family of the murdered woman, was held in the Plaza Mayor. Paloma’s sister, María Pinedo, has read a manifesto that calls for the creation of these public records of the aggressors against her couples and minors.
The family asks that the murderer serve the maximum sentences
“We feel immensely supported to ask for justice, we want the full weight of the law to fall on the murderer who has taken your life in such a cruel and unfair way,” said María.
He has also claimed “the maximum applicable penalty, reviewable permanent prison, so that the murderer does not have freedom again and with it the possibility of taking it away from anyone else.”
“Paloma, India, we come together to shout that we love you, that we will never forget you, that they have taken your life and us too,” he added.
The family does not want and cannot “live in a society that makes this kind of crime common,” he said.
And that there be a registry of macho aggressors
The sister has said that Paloma “was not notified” that her partner had a history of sexist violence in a previous relationship, from 2017, for which she has insisted that these public records of this type of aggressor be created.
And her mother, tearfully remembered her daughter and regretted that she had “brought the murderer into the house, the person who killed her and her daughter, what fault would the girl have?” She “she has taken them both in a hideous way.”
“We are going to ask for justice, for Paloma and for India, so that this does not happen again because it has been too brutal a crime,” María stressed, before the start of the concentration, closed with a minute of silence.
A massive demonstration
The massive demonstration has forced to reduce the time of a previous concentration that requested a ban on hunting with greyhounds.
The Minister of the Presidency, Jesús Julio Carnero, the Minister of the Provincial Council, Conrado Íscar; and the former mayor of Valladolid León de la Riva, all from the PP, have been some of the participants.
Also the general secretary of the Vox parliamentary group in the Cortes and attorney for Palencia, David del Hierro.
“It is clear that the system fails and that the policies of the Government of Spain are not working,” the president of the Provincial Council assured the media.
For his part, Jesús Julio Carnero – who is also a candidate for City Hall for his party – has not made any statements to the media but has shared a video on social networks in which he has expressed all his support for the family.
“The permanent prison was established by the government of Mariano Rajoy, of the PP, and it can be opposed to a law like the ‘yes is yes’ law, fruit of the Sánchez government and the Socialist Party,” Carnero has raised.
Among the attendees was also Miguel, the father of Esther López, the young woman who disappeared one morning on January 13 of last year and whose body was found in a ditch on an access road to the Valladolid municipality of Traspinedo, one year ago today. , without the case yet being clarified. EFE
