Mérida, Yucatán, (July 21, 2021).- Local representatives unanimously approved an opinion to establish that these crimes are imprescriptible, which means, that sexual crimes, corruption, trafficking, and child pornography against a minor of age, will be severely punished to protect this vulnerable sector from attacks that threaten the development of personality, freedom and psychosexual development.

The legislative product adds Article 121 Bis of the Penal Code, regarding the prescription of crimes against the free development of personality and sexual crimes in minors, presented by the PRI representative, Luis Borjas Romero.

The coordinator of the PAN fraction, Rosa Adriana Díaz Lizama, argued that there are eyewitness testimonies of underage women who were abused by family members and since they were unable to report when they were of legal age, their perpetrators continued to commit these crimes. “This is an obligation that we have as legislators, which gives opportunity to many people who have been violated and who have been victims for many years because the law itself is not protecting them properly.”
