Mexico: Sinaloa Governor Calls for Special Investigation on Femicides

Aguachile commends Sinaloa Governor Mario López Valdez (Malova) “for taking the issue of femicides seriously and not brushing it under the carpet […] Malova considered the rise in femicides in Sinaloa “alarming,” and called for a special investigation by his justice department to analyze the so far 56 reported cases of femicides this year, where the women have been targeted principally for being women. Last year saw 111 cases in the state.”
