In the previous report, we told you that although we have not reached 9% of the resources necessary for the execution of this project, even without economic resources, but with a very high spirit of commitment we have advanced in the attention of at least 8 more women
In this report, we want to emphasize how, through our legal campaigning, we have managed to find justice for 2 cases in which the rights of women and girls have been seriously violated.
The first refers to the femicide of Meibi Lozano. Last April 25, Idea Dignidad represented the mother of the victim and achieved the judicial decision by which the sentence of 26 years of deprivation of liberty for the femicide of Meibi, a 23-year-old indigenous woman of nationality, was ratified. Indigenous of the Saraguro people, who was murdered in Riobamba on May 1, 2017, by her ex-partner, Denis Adrián, 28 years old. Although in this case the use of indigenous justice was controversial, the rights of the victims were prevailed. See more information in the link.·
The second case is that of the 6-year-old E.M.C.T girl who was the victim of sexual abuse together with her classmates by her teacher at the 11 de Octubre School in the north-west of the city of Quito. Through the representation of Idea Dignidad it has been achieved that in this case, the girl's sexual aggressor is sentenced to a sentence of 16 years and the girl and her family repaired by the educational institution. See more information in the link.·
And the last case we want to refer to is that of the 8 year old girl J.G.V.G sexually abused together with her aunts (also minors), by her stepfather. Also in this case, through the legal support of Idea Dignidad, the Rights Protection Board of the Quitumbe sector in the south of the city of Quuito issued, among others, the following protection measures: a) distancing from the aggressor and prohibition from continuing to exercise violence, intimidation or, threats, b) to the school where the girl JGVG and her brothers study and follow up the school performance, c) and the institutional programs All Life and the Special Protection Service provide psychological and social support to the mother and all the minors to overcome the different situations of violence.
It is so with and without resources, we will not cease in our task of protecting girls and women victims of violence. To those who have believed in us and in our work, thank you!
