Victim Protection Laws (El Sol de Tijuana, 1/11/13 by Juan Guizar)
Tijuana, BC - A new General Law of Victims, promulgated by the President of the Republic and published in the Official Journal of the Federation, "serves an old demand of society, who for many years have lived helpless in the absence of State protection", warned the President of the Business Coordinating Council, Mario Escobedo Carignan.
Deciding in favor of the new legislation, the business leader considered it should be improved, because laws are subject to the spirit of strengthening the institutional framework of new guidelines, but also to include those claims which have not been fully met.
He explained that the presence of this new law does not mean the end of struggles companies must maintain when they feel threatened or harmed. Personal safety on the contrary, "I think starts here, by making this claim".
The Business Coordinators Councils of Baja California State Coordinator, also underscored the mood of the federal administration to meet and talk with key leaders spearheaded by civil society. "Are those that have been striving to change procedural rigidity of victims as those who are already subjects of a crime, hence the importance the Government taking into account their views".
Escobedo Carignan recalled that the business sector was the first who sought the requirements of a nation for peaceful and safe assessments, suggesting the creation of Councils Citizens of Public Safety, supporting and promoting institutional coordination, so it will be the first to join in subsequent work requiring this General Law of Victims. http://www.oem.com.mx/elsoldetijuana/notas/n2837911.htm
