On January 10th, the Political Coordination Board of Oaxaca (JUCOPO in its Spanish acronym) decided to set up a Special Commission to attend to and investigate femicidal violence.

According to Educa Oaxaca, “since last September 6th JUCOPO had unanimously approved the creation of a specialized group to investigate and analyze the violence that women live through in the state.”

When JUCOPO made the decision in September, “more than 70 femicides had occurred until then under the current administration”, according to data from Dialogos Oaxaca.

During the presidency of Alejandro Murat Hinojosa, governor of Oaxaca, the number of women murdered stands at 123 according to the Consortium for Parliamentary Dialogue and Equity for Femicides of Oaxaca
