Opposition leaders highlighted the fact that most homicides of women are not processed as feminicides.

In a press conference, National Action Party state Secretary General Rosario Rodriguez said only one of five suspects of killing women are arraigned for feminicide.

The crime is considered in Baja California law as a gender based homicide of a woman.

According to the politician, last year the state recorded 14.4 homicides per 100,000 residents, over four times the nation’s average.

In the meantime, the state led last year in homicides of women and so far in 2022 Baja California has reported 44 assassinated women.

Rodriguez accused the administration for failing to address the issue.

“There’s no coordination among the three levels of government,” she said.

Party state Women’s Political Promotion Secretary General Alejandra Rodriguez said investigation of female homicides is deficient. During the administration of National Action Party Governor Francisco Vega a gender based warning was requested to address the issue, but the request was activated until recently.
