The City Council strongly condemns and shows its institutional rejection in what supposedly can be treated two new cases of sexist violence known during the last days in Spain, in this case in AgĂźimes (Gran Canaria) and Iznájar (Córdoba), respectively.
The Institute of Legal Medicine of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria has already confirmed that the autopsy performed on the murdered woman, 39, in the municipality of AgĂźimes, shows that her partner killed her and later committed suicide, which confirms that It's about a case of gender violence.
The judicial authorities confirm that there were no previous reports of mistreatment between the couple, and that the proceedings that are processed in the Court of Instruction No. 3 of Telde have passed to the Court of Violence against Women.
On the other hand, a 53-year-old man and a 51-year-old woman were also found dead at his home in the Cordoba municipality of Iznájar;
in the case of a violent death by a firearm, all the hypotheses in which the armed body works, which is the one who has taken charge of the investigation, are open.
The main hypothesis with which we work is that it could be a case of gender deviolence;
In fact, the body of the woman has been found inside the house, while the man was next to the shotgun at the entrance of the house, so it is investigated whether that weapon is the murder weapon.
Apparently, a letter written by the man has also been found, although the content of it is unknown.
So far this year, 27 women have been killed in Spain by their partners or ex-partners, a figure that almost doubles the seven murders in the first quarter of 2018. In January, six women were murdered, three in February and another four in March.
From the totanero Consistory emphasizes the need to work together to stop and end this social scourge so it insists on the need to raise awareness from education to avoid behavior that incites inequality between men and women.
Against gender violence we have to make a common front of "Zero Tolerance";
because not only do we have to remember the people who die murdered at the hands of their partners, but also all those who suffer every day in their homes any kind of physical or psychological violence.
