Federal Auditor Says Mexico's Violence Against Women Commission Produces No Results

Interviews From Mexico - Violence against Women and Feminicides (teleSURtv)

In its most recent performance evaluation of government agencies, the Superior Auditor of the Federation [ASF] concluded that, during the first year of the current federal administration [2013], the National Commission for Preventing and Eradicating Violence Against Women [Conavim] did not meet the purposes set out by law for the organization which is under the direction of the Secretariat of Government Relations [SG].

The ASF listed the legal and policy provisions not fulfilled by Conavim during the first year of the Peña Nieto administration. During 2013, the Commission did not issue a single declaration of gender-based violence, despite the fact that in states such as Guanajuato the femicides have multiplied from 25 to 85 cases.

The auditing organization warned that Conavim had not designed a comprehensive policy with a gender-based perspective for the benefit of 60.6 million Mexican women, as established by the decree by which it was created, even though it had 121.6 million pesos [US$8 million] to “promote attention to, and prevention of, violence against women”.

During the period reviewed, the Commission also didn’t gather statistical information about the cases of violence against women, as a base to create the National Bank of Data and Information about cases of violence against women and, as a consequence, it lacked the information to assess the advances of the program as a whole to prevent, attend to, punish and eradicate attacks.

Mexico Voices is a blogging endeavor aimed at raising the awareness of U.S. citizens regarding the destructive impact of the U.S. economic policy and the War on Drugs on Mexico — on its people, their economic and physical security and their human rights, on the nation’s dysfunctional justice system, and on the rule of law and Mexico’s fragile democracy.
