ZARAGOZA, 3 Feb. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Secretary of State for Justice (SEJ), Tontxu Rodríguez, has assured today that the PSOE has already prepared the bill to modify the Law of 'only yes is yes' in case they do not reach an agreement with the Ministry of Irene Montero .
Tontxu Rodríguez has participated this Friday in Zaragoza in a meeting with the autonomous communities that use the Avantius procedural management system. There he has indicated that he trusts that the agreement between Justice, Equality and the Government as a whole "will arrive as soon as possible", warning that if it does not, "there is always the possibility of a bill by the PSOE, He already has it ready."
However, the Secretary of State for Justice has concluded: "We want an agreement between government partners and it would be ideal for the situation that has occurred to be redirected." In any case, it has made it clear that the consent, "heart" of the law of 'only yes is yes', "will not be touched" in the reform of this norm, which has generated discrepancy between the partners of the Government, PSOE and United We Can.
"I think that the 'only yes is yes' is a good law, but the 200 deputies who voted for it in Congress did not at all think that it would have results like the ones it is having, with a reduction in sentences or the release of criminals. sexual," he said.
He has expressed that the Ministry of Justice "is doing important work" to reach an agreement between the PSOE and Unidas Podemos, ensuring that consent, which is "the heart of the law", "will not be touched". He has advanced that work is being done on the possibility of increasing the penalties.
