The call Ingrid’s law advanced in the Senate; It is a big step, he stressed Olga Sanchez Corderoas it combats gender media violence, by criminalize public servants filtering or disseminating images or information of victims of aggressionparticularly women.
In the Senate Justice Committee unanimously approved; is a reform to Article 225 Bis of the Federal Penal Codefor which public servants who filter, publish either spread videos, images, audio, documents or any evidence related to corpses of girls, kids, teenagers, women or menthat work in an investigation folder or in a criminal process.
Sanchez Cordero, President of the Justice Commissionexplained that the ruling considers three initiatives by senators from different parties, “which originally proposed only protecting the images of women’s corpses; however, due to a gender issue, it was also agreed to extend the protection to men, with the difference that the penalty will be aggravated in the case of women, girls, boys and adolescents”.
The panista senator Indira San Roman explained that the “Ingrid law, part of a terrible and unfortunate event: on February 9, 2020, Ingrid Escamilla Vargas was assassinated. In addition to being a femicide, what leads us to this law were the images that were disseminated of the stabbed and mutilated body. This is where the need to give this special protection to women comes from.”
The senators explained in the commission that this regulation aims to protect victims and their families from re-victimization, for this the federal Penal Code is modified and an addendum to the opinion is proposed to establish that punishment is not only applied in cases where the victim is a woman but in any case.
Manuel Añorve, a PRI senator, during his speech in the commission stated: “Sorry, I don’t want to get into complications of gender equality, but in these issues, in these leaks that are given by the competent authority, it is, unfortunately, with who comes the red note trying to visualize it on social networksin the newspapers. The issue of a woman is as serious as that of a man, of a boy, of a girl”.
Sánchez Cordero intervened and stated: “I think that it should not only be these leaks, but that we also have that it is not only women, but also men.”
And he added, however, “I also agree that these sanctions provided for these leaks are aggravated if they are boys, girls, adolescents and women.”
It is explained in the opinion that entities such as Mexico City, Colima, Coahuila, Chihuahua, Jalisco and Oaxaca have legislation that penalizes the filtering and dissemination of images of victims of violence against women. However, it was highlighted, if this regulation is approved in the Congress of the Union, there will be a sanction for these illegal acts at the federal level.
