A month has passed since Leila sent her twin sister Alana into the void. Hand in hand, the 12-year-old girls threw themselves from the balcony of their house in Sallent, a Catalan town 74 kilometers from Barcelona. A fall from the third story kills Alana. his sister survives.
Today, Leila is recovering. He is still in the hospital, but his life is not in danger. Reparation treatment began gradually.
He arrived at the Parc Taulí hospital in Sabadell with a broken jaw, multiple fractures and suspected pneumonia. Now it gets a little better every day.
How long he will stay with his parents and 10-year-old brother Amadeo in Spain depends on the recovery period.
The family has been in Sallent, a town of 6,700 inhabitants, for three years, but now after this tragedy they cannot return to Mar del Plata, where they are. They want to return, they must be among their own, and take Alana’s ashes “home”.
They called him “sudacas”.
Leila has been in the hospital since February 21, when returning from school she decided not to leave her sister alone in her plan to end the torture she endured at school. They lived to be crushed. They called them “sudacas”. They made fun of the Argentinian accent with which they spoke and the preference Alana had revealed: she wanted to be called Ivan.
For this reason, on a Tuesday in February, when they returned from school, they wrote their goodbye letters, pulled two chairs to the platform and jumped off.
“You know how much I love my sister, I have seen all that she is suffering, I will do what she decides. I will accompany her wherever she wants,” Leila wrote.
“I want to be happy, but obviously I’m going to suffer this for the rest of my life and I’ve made the decision not to continue,” said Alana’s letter.
Manresa, Court of Inquiry number 5, who was in office that day, took over the case of inquiry. He compiled police reports prepared by the Mossos d’Equadra – the local Catalan police – in which they confirm that the girls were victims of brutality. And a few days ago Lucas, the father of the twins, took up the conversation.
At the recommendation of the lawyer who represents them, neither Lucas nor Maia, the mother of the girls, said what they said. They protected themselves in silence from the fact that they went around the first days of March, to whom it was known that they would only speak through their lawyer “out of respect for privacy and the memory of their daughters” and not to interfere. judicial and police investigation. .
It will not be the main school
The Catalan Ministry of Education, on its part, decided to relieve the director of the Llobregat de Sallent Public Institute where Alana and Leila were in the first year of ESO, Compulsory Secondary Education, according to Spanish law.
The General Secretary of Education of the Generalitat of Catalonia, Patricia Gomà, declared that the method should be applied next school year. In Spain the classes end in September and in June.
“We think it’s a positive measure, because of the change and the rest of the institute, which is very affected.” He suffered a lot from these things,” said the official.
He also declared that seven reports have been prepared – from the inspection of education, from the inspection of services, from the school administration, from the pedagogical team, from the counselor, from the teacher, and also from the USAV (Support Unit for students in Situation Violence) – that will be available to the court.
“The tragic event is such a collective failure as a society,” the president of the Catalan Generalitat Pere Aragonès Clarin told in an exclusive interview.
“No words can replace the pain that parents feel when they lose one of their daughters or one of their sons. Now what must be done is accompanied by the family, the environment, the educational community and especially we move forward in the investigation, because the family deserves to be able to have all the information that can be understood after this tragic event; he added.
On the Facebook page of the Llobregat de Sallent Institute, the latest publication from January 2016. “Great turnout at the wildlife conference”. Very interesting!” he reads in three pictures of the audience who attended the talk.
