“We continue with a high tolerance for gender violence. There is data on the level of tolerance that exists in the case that you present. We must continue rejecting them, sanctioning them. We always have a tension with the issue of the media about whether this goes against freedom of expression. I believe that we must continue dialoguing, conversing and looking for a way out, because the media cannot in some way, not only make fun of, let’s say a crime because it is a crime, but because this contributes to impunity. So, we live in a country with a lot of impunity and so that has to be changed”he remarked.
