SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, 13 May. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The Parliament of the Canary Islands joins this Friday in the demonstrations condemning the murder by gender violence of Clotilde, the 82-year-old woman from Galicia found dead in the south of Tenerife after being stabbed by her husband in an apartment.
The president of the Chamber, Gustavo Matos, expresses the dismay of the institution for this new case of sexist violence with which the 99 women murdered in the Canary Islands since 2003 have been reached and expresses all the support, solidarity and affection of the Parliament to relatives and friends of Clotilde.
Matos underlines in a note the need to continue “joining and working tirelessly” from all areas of society to eradicate any manifestation of violence against women, “violence that finds its hardest and most bitter face in murder.”
The President recalls that there is a network of specialized resources in prevention, care, support and protection for women victims of gender violence and their sons and daughters.
