70 Percent of Crimes in Argentina Go Unreported

BUENOS AIRES - 70 percent of crimes in Argentina are not reported, according to statistics from Argentina's criminal and judicial system, published Monday by Infojus News of the Ministry of Justice and Human rights.

The statistics show only 60 percent of women report incidents of domestic violence against them.

In the National Survey on Violence Against Women, 42 percent of respondents had admitted to "been subjected to physical or sexual violence since the age of 16."

Only 36 percent women reported abuse by partners while in the case of sexual abuse, an alarming 98 percent did nothing.

"Among women who reported having experienced physical violence by men who are not their partners, only 17 percent lodged complaints; this further decreases to 10 percent in case of sexual violence," added the Survey.

Figures from the country's penal and penitentiary system show in 2014 Argentina had 69,060 inmates; 48 percent of whom were convicted while 51 percent were in preventive custody.
