MADRID, 22 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Minister of Justice, Pilar Llop, has responded to the criticism launched by the Minister of Equality, Irene Montero, about the machismo of judges after the sentences for those convicted of sexual assault have been reduced with the entry into force of the Law 'only yes is yes' ensuring that the judges in Spain "leave their skin" in defense of the victims, that they are trained and that they do an "extraordinary" job.
This is how the head of Justice has pronounced this Tuesday in an interview on RNE, collected by Europa Press, in which she has also highlighted that Spain is a pioneering country in training and protection of women's rights and that other neighboring countries look to our country when they seek answers and institutional mechanisms for the protection of women.
"We have to think about that, about the great quality of Justice and the resources that we offer from all the institutions," Llop added.
At another point, he has insisted that the "seed" of the Law 'only yes is yes' is from the Ministry of Equality. "The Ministry of Justice is the co-proponent, but it is Equality who is the main one, in the sense that it leads the law," Llop clarified, while defending its objective.
"There is a good law. I want to value it because it has an impact on protecting the victims," he has sentenced.
