Court of appeals for crimes against women inaugurated in Barcelona

The event constitutes a milestone in the fight against gender violence in the state of Anzoátegui

In an event held this Friday, at the Palace of Justice of Barcelona, ​​the Court of Appeals of the Criminal Judicial Circuit with Jurisdiction in Matters of Crimes of Violence against Women was inaugurated.

The ceremony was headed by Judge Caryslia Beatriz Rodríguez Rodríguez, president of the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ), who highlighted the importance of this new instance for the protection of women's rights.

“This court is of utmost importance because it provides the possibility of exercising resources without people having to travel outside the usual territory, for example, to another state. This means a significant advance in access to justice for women victims of violence, who will now be able to present their appeals in their own city without having to travel long distances,” highlighted the country's highest judicial authority.

In this sense, the creation of this new court represents a crucial step in the fight against violence against women in the entity. Previously, women victims of gender violence had to travel to Maturín to present their appeals, which generated procedural delays, difficulties in accessing justice and re-victimization.

The president of the TSJ explained that the new judicial instance in Barcelona has three specialized attention rooms: Trial Court No. 2, Control Court No. 3 and the Court of Appeals, all of them dedicated to dealing with cases of violence against the woman.

In addition, it has a team of professionals trained to provide support, legal advice and accompaniment to victims.

Rodríguez highlighted the work that is being promoted to guarantee due process, effective judicial protection and the full enjoyment of the human rights of women, girls and adolescents in the country.

The mayor of the Simón Bolívar municipality, Sugey Herrera, who was also present at the inauguration, expressed her satisfaction with the creation of this new instance: “Together, we build a safer municipality free of violence for women.”

He highlighted that there are three specialized care rooms in matters of violence, which will serve as safe spaces for women who face situations of vulnerability and guarantee speed in the attention of cases.
