In contrast, family violence increased 15.5%, “it must be said that the last six months of the year have been on the decline, but it has not yet been enough, we have an increase of 15.5%”.

“In the case of rape there is also an increase of 20.8% and extortion also an increase of 11.2%, which is a crime linked to criminal groups,” he said.
