| Miriam Guardiola: "It is essential that the Ministry of Justice takes charge of a matter of public order and provision of legal security and protection of minors and families, especially to prevent cases of violence "| The Popular Party, by means of a motion in the Regional Assembly, has asked the central government to set up the Courts for the Protection of Children and Adolescents throughout Spain.
Miriam Guardiola, promoter of the initiative, stated that "it is essential that the Ministry of Justice takes charge of a matter of public order and provides legal security and protection to minors and families, especially to prevent cases of violence." The "popular" vice-spokesperson recalled that "the Organic Law for the Comprehensive Protection of Children and Adolescents against violence includes a mandate to the Government to establish the specialization of the criminal and civil jurisdiction, as was done in its day with the in progress of the Violence Against Women courts ", and that also" the General Council of the Judiciary recalled at the time that the creation of judicial bodies with specialized competence in the protection of minors and adolescents was already considered, as a recommendation, in the General Observation of the Committee on the Rights of the Child ".
In particular, as Guardiola explained, "the Spanish State was recommended to increase the number of judges specialized in childhood, and ensure that specialized courts are available for juvenile justice and procedures that take into account the needs of children.
The regional parliamentarian has pointed out in this sense the need for the Government of Spain to guarantee in all courts and judicial parties, "as well as in any other bodies or entities where the different legal and judicial agents are part, a Guide of good practices to childhood, a protocol for the reception and accompaniment of underage victims, conditioned waiting rooms and Gesell rooms to protect especially vulnerable people such as minors " "The Ministry of Justice must take action on a matter of general interest such as the protection of minors, especially in those places where they do not have exclusive powers in the matter," said Guardiola, who then requested the central Executive " accelerate and streamline judicial procedures that affect minors, improve coordination throughout Spain, and achieve adequate training and qualification of professionals who deal with this issue.
" "All of this is about ensuring the maximum judicial protection of the minor, and above all avoiding traumatic episodes that may affect them and prevent them from developing their free personality", Miriam Guardiola concluded.
