In 2015, more than 39,000 prosecution cases were registered in national courts. Of these, more than 7,400 (19%) had to do with sexual harassment in public spaces.
Complaints for obscene words or acts are the most reported. They are followed by disrespectful proposals, indecent exposures and molestations.
It is a complex topic in the courts because many of them are related to family or community conflicts.
How to report?

-If he has police records, the person must go to ratify the facts.
