Signatures reach 300,000 to reform sexual crimes in the Criminal Code

Up to 300,000 people have already signed the petition to amend the Criminal Code in relation to the criminalization of sexual crimes after the initiative opened three days ago in when the judgment against the Manresa of Manresa was known, which condemns the five defendants for sexual abuse and not for sexual assault.

The judgment of the Court of Barcelona that condemns sentences of 10 to 12 years in jail for sexual abuse to five of the six prosecuted for raping a child under 14 in turns in Manresa (Barcelona) has recovered the controversy over the urgency of reform the Criminal Code to eliminate the figure of sexual abuse and consider violation any penetration without consent.

The petition of signatures addressed to the Ministry of Justice, among other institutions, regrets that the court has ruled out the request of the prosecution, which in line with the doctrine of the Supreme Court, accused of sexual assault on understanding that the victim was intimidated.

"It already happened in his day with 'La Manada' of Pamplona and has happened again: in the Spanish Criminal Code there is an absence of legal recognition of sexual relations without consent," says this citizen initiative, which asks to change that legal text Articles 178 and 181 to criminalize "a sexual relationship without consent" as a violation.
