They link a mother to the process for making public that the father of her daughters sexually abused them

Two years ago, Mónica Peyro filed a criminal complaint against the father of her daughters for sexual abuse and rape against the girls. but still having the opinion of a forensic doctor who reviewed the youngest daughter and determined that the girl had suffered anal penetration, the judge decided to dismiss the case and not to exercise criminal action. Instead, now the mother has been linked to the process after her ex-husband and alleged aggressor of her minors accused her of family violence.

The complaint against Mónica Peyro, her brother and her father is for having appeared in the media and for making publications on social networks denouncing sexual abuse and rape and asking for justice for the girls, which caused the father alleged psychological damage.

This Saturday, April 30, a control judge linked Peyro and his brother to the process; in other words, they are already charged with the probable responsibility for the act. The Public Ministry requested two months to carry out the complementary investigations.

Meanwhile, the judge ordered Peyro and his brother not to have any more communication with the media and to download all the publications made about the case on social networks, so the woman decided to close her twitter account and not give any more interviews.

In a previous conversation with Political AnimalPeyro affirmed that all this is a retaliation for having made public the case of sexual assault against the girls and for pointing out, even before deputies in the local congress of Durango, where they live, that the authorities have acted to favor the alleged aggressor for being a prominent businessman in the state, and by the political ties of his father.

Alvaro León, Peyro’s lawyer, denounces that this is a case of influence peddling and, therefore, there are many irregularities in the process. The crime they are charged with, he says, is for family violence, which occurs when there is intentional omission or acts of power, so the judge interpreted that they were exercising psychological violence on the girls’ father on networks and that was an act of power .

In addition, it determined that the alleged psychological damage was also for the daughters of Mónica Peyro, due to the exposure in the media and networks of the case of abuse and rape of which they were victims.

“The network publications that Mónica and her brother made do not give to allege that it is family violence, the abuse of power does not exist here. In addition, there is not even an expert opinion that says that the accounts are theirs, it was enough for the judge to see their photograph as proof, ”says the lawyer.

Another thing that Álvaro León complains about is that supposedly the judge already had his resolution written, “he was reading it, we realized that, it is not that he had decided before the arguments of the defense and the public prosecutor, he already had his resolution and just dismissed all my arguments and evidence.”

What Monica and her lawyer will do now is appeal the connection to the process. “Since the appeal falls to the local judges, if it is unfavorable to us, we will have to resort to protection,” explains León.

selective justice

In October 2019, Mónica Peyro asked her then-husband for a divorce. On November 29, 2019, still living in the same house, he picked up the girls from school and did not return them to the family home.

That same day, the father of the minors filed a lawsuit for divorce and for custody and parental authority, “alleging that I am not in good mental standing, that I am always doped because of it, and that I have not been taking care of my daughters. In six business hours they give him custody, with the girls abducted and out of state,” the mother said in a previous interview with Political Animal.

Peyro filed the complaint for child abduction and went to the Prosecutor’s Office to have a psychological and toxicological examination done, in which she was suitable for the role of mother, although with signs of depression and anxiety, but due to the disappearance of the minors. Monica also managed to verify with photos and videos that she has always lived with her daughters and has taken care of them.

Finally, the father of the minors was linked to the process for illegal abduction, but he pleaded guilty and requested the suspension, the judge granted it and Peyro asked the judge to return his daughters, to which he replied that he did not. could do because a family judge had already awarded custody to the father.

Monica went to a criminal judge to claim custody and it was granted, so together with the authorities, Peyro went to the paternal grandparents’ house where the girls were supposed to be, but they found no one.

The next day, Peyro said in the previous interview, the girls’ father’s lawyers looked for hers and told them that Mónica could see her daughters again if she signed an agreement, which included shared custody of the minors: four days with her father and four days with her, in addition to the vacations distributed equally.

It was in this period that Peyro began to notice changes in the behavior of her daughters, which made her suspect a probable sexual abuse. On April 17, 2020, she filed a complaint for this crime against whoever is responsible for her.

Until a forensic doctor certified that the youngest of the girls had signs of anal penetration, she filed the complaint for rape, on August 11, 2020, against the father of her daughters because one of them pointed it out directly.

It was that complaint in which a judge ruled that the forensic doctor was wrong and that what the girls were referring to were nothing more than “acts of love from their father” and dismissed the case and did not exercise criminal action.

But the process continues, since Mónica Peyro challenged the judge’s decision. Only now she fears that she will go to jail and her daughters will remain under the guardianship of her alleged aggressor.
