The director of Family and Childhood of the Department of Equality, Justice and Social Policies of the Basque Government, Mrs. Irune Muguruza, has indicated this morning: "The triple line of action of the Basque Government against violence against children is based on the Preliminary Draft of the Law of Childhood and Adolescence, the Basque Strategy against violence towards children and adolescents and the Barnahus Euskadi Project”.

Muguruza has spoken at the EHU UPV Summer Course held in Donostia-San Sebastián on “The forensic interview for pre-constituted evidence of children and adolescents who are victims of violence”.

“Violence against girls and boys is physical, psychological or emotional abuse, physical, humiliating or degrading punishment, neglect or negligent treatment, threats, insults and slander, exploitation, including sexual violence, corruption, pornography child prostitution, bullying, sexual harassment, cyberbullying, gender-based violence, genital mutilation, human trafficking for any purpose, forced marriage, child marriage, unsolicited access to pornography, sexual extortion, the public dissemination of private data as well as the presence of any violent behaviour in their family environment” Muguruza has detailed.

The director of Family and Childhood has referred in detail to the Barnahus Euskadi Project “since it is a recommendation of the United Nations and the Council of Europe. There is clinical and empirical evidence of the effectiveness of the model, and studies indicate that it contributes to speeding up judicial intervention and increasing the number of detected cases, arrests, and prosecutions and convictions.”
