    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Cases like Brandon (11 month old who died in April due to an assault by her mother and her partner), or of Jesus (the child who has been involved in multiple occasions by the National Child Welfare but is still wandering Guadalupe), to the most recent girl Yerelin that is still missing, and that of Jordan , who died from malnutrition all have a common denominator: they had come to public institutions before their realities came to light.

    Because of these examples the Paniamor foundation is stressing the importance of reform for the Criminal Code to strengthen the legal and administrative protection of children living in situations of domestic violence and abuse.

    This was explained by Milena Grillo, executive director of Paniamor, adding that this is intended not only to strengthen the protection of minors but public institutions to ensure they are more proactive.

    “We will present on Tuesday a draft amendment to the Criminal Code to offer create more effective protection for children and adolescents in situations of abuse,” said Grillo.

    “With this bill we would be going to hold staff members responsible for dereliction of duty. We have a great concern about the things that have happened recently: from the missing girl to the boy who died from malnutrition. When a child that is passed through a series of services and the situation was not addressed as it should be, we want the state to be more proactive and committed to public work,” added the director.

    This draft will be presented Tuesday at 9:30 am in the Legislative Assembly and according to Grillo has the backing of the various fractions of the Assembly.
