The murderer of the little girl sentenced to reviewable permanent prison

The Court of Huesca has sentenced Iván Pardo Pena to permanent prison as the author of the murder of Naiara, 8 years old, after torture that lasted for several hours at the home of the accused, in July 2017, in the Huesca town of Sabiñánigo.

The ruling conforms to the verdict handed down on September 24 by the jury that tried the case, appreciates the cruel circumstances and the minority of the girl to establish the permanent reviewable prison sentence, to which it adds another of 2 years for habitual abuse.

In addition, it condemns him to pay compensation of 120,000 and 30,000 euros to Naiara’s biological mother and father, whom he will not be able to approach or communicate within 500 meters until 10 years after his effective release from prison.

The court also imposed penalties of 2 years in prison on the little girl’s stepfather and her grandmother, considering that they not only consented to the punishments that were inflicted but also encouraged them.

The sentence argues that the corporal punishment imposed on Naiara “responds to a way of understanding outdated education, widely exceeded, disproportionate and unfair”, and emphasizes that when the events occurred “the school year had finished, the minor had passed the exams, so recovery and improvement in school subjects was not essential at that time.
