Tacacho case: the fourth perimeter coincided with the third

Paola Tacacho had two perimeter measures in force at the same time against the femicide Mauricio Parada Parejas. This coincidence arises from cases N ° 9 and N ° 10, which began one day apart and that, according to the prosecutor Claudio Bonari, should be processed together by his partner Ignacio López Bustos, then in charge of the Specialized Prosecutor's Office on Violence Family and Gender No. 2, although the first was filed at the time of accumulation with the second (reported separately). Although none of these files - nor the previous eight - led to the trial of Parada Parejas, they do reflect the fluidity with which the judicial system gave protective measures. On May 14, 2020, the then Criminal Investigation Judge No. 2 of this ca...

Tacacho I case: “let the family take charge of this danger”

Paola Tacacho anticipated numerous times to the state authorities the crime that she ended up suffering on October 30, 2020, when Mauricio Parada Parejas attacked her on the street, in the heart of the Northern Quarter of this capital, and then committed suicide. On May 11 of that year, the 31-year-old English teacher went for the umpteenth time to the I ° police station where she was again treated by the assistant officer Hugo Matías Cabeza Ruiz, the same policeman who had intervened in the preparation of the at least four previous complaints in the same agency. That day, according to the young woman, Parada Parejas had returned to her building, and rang her bell and that of the neighbors to try to locate her. Before Cabeza Ruiz, the tea...

During this period, the prosecutor Ignacio López Bustos came to take two measures: on the one hand, he requested the third restraining order for the femicide Mauricio Parada Parejas - which Judge Facundo Maggio immediately granted - and, on the other, he ordered the I ° police station personnel carrying out “preventive tours” in the area where the victim lived, specifying that they establish a telephone contact with the victim. After the notification of the disposition to monitor the residence of Tacacho, the defenders of Parada Parejas, ...
