Cancun, Q.R. – A new justice center for women has opened in the city of Cancun. The new facility will provide comprehensive care for victims of crimes related to gender violence for women, children, girls and adolescents.
The State Attorney General’s Office (FGE) says the center already has a backlog of 298 investigation folders for violence against women from January to date. They say that 258 of those files are in regard to sexual offences against women, adolescents and minors. Trained staff of more than 45 will be available to deal with sexual crimes and domestic violence.
State Attorney General Miguel Angel Pech Cen was on hand for the unveiling of the new center. An official inauguration for the center will be held toward the end of June when a specialized prosecutor’s office for crimes against women has been selected.
The new facility is located in Region 94, block 8 on Avenida Miguel Hidaglo and is available Monday to Sunday.
