After protests over the murder and rape of a 7-year-old girl, Mexican deputies decided to increase the penalties imposed against femicide.
The Chamber of Deputies of Mexico approved Tuesday to increase the maximum penalties of years in prison for femicide after the murder of a 7-year-old girl, whose body was found in a plastic bag in the capital.
The reformed law was approved with 415 votes in favor and one against. With this measure, the minimum penalty for those who commit feminicide in Mexico went from 40 to 45 years.
Likewise, the deputies approved an economic sanction of between 1,000 and 1,500 days of minimum wage, which is equivalent to 123,220 to 184,830 pesos ($9,942 the greater amount).
Nos están matando y hay que hacer algo ya. Lo seguiremos diciendo hasta que las muertes de mujeres y niñas paren, hasta que asumamos que la nuestra es una sociedad machista, violenta, feminicida y empecemos a cambiar. Pongamos manos a la obra desde esta Cámara.#JusticiaParaFátimapic.twitter.com/gIEfmDLdkT
