Beatriz Zimmerman, mother of Anna and Olivia, girls allegedly murdered by their father in Tenerife, has sent a letter to public opinion to be disseminated. In it, he calls for a tightening of the legislation on violence against minors. He also claims to miss the “day to day … the gestures of combing them” and wants his death not to be in vain and that at least “it serves to create greater awareness about the love we give to our children, in valuing it and when we are with they do not have the head in other matters but in them. They need us and adore us.
Beatriz begins by writing “with all the pain in my soul, I want to write you a thank you letter” and addresses all public opinion: “To all of you who have been in hearts and prayers with them and with me accompanying them every day since They disappeared, offering all their love and help so that it would have a happy ending. Unfortunately it was not like that, suffering in pain the most monstrous act that a person can commit: killing his own innocent children.
