Britani Jaqueline


Britani was beaten by five police officers after they arrested her for an alleged robbery. She died from her injuries after being unable to access medical assistance.

Five officers - including the security commissioner of the Municipality of Casimiro Castillo - were arrested and charged with the crimes of enforced disappearance, abuse of authority and qualified homicide.

On August 26, a new hate crime was registered in Jalisco. This is the case of Britani Jaqueline, a trans woman beaten to death by police officers from the municipality of Casimiro Castillo.

According to LGBT + organizations and local press, both the Public Prosecutor's Office and the Municipal Police made her transfeminicide invisible. Both institutions avoided reporting that the victim was a trans woman. They even used their deadname and referred to Britani with masculine pronouns.

The hate crime against Britani Jaqueline occurred after municipal police from Casimiro Castillo, Jalisco, arrested her for an alleged robbery. According to local media, Letra Fría, the municipal police did not fill out the detention protocol and beat Britani "brutally". Later, upon leaving the separations, the victim required urgent medical assistance. However, "she could not be transferred", and died as a result of the beatings.

The aforementioned media indicated that the Jalisco Prosecutor's Office has already linked five people - the security commissioner of the Municipality of Casimiro Castillo and four municipal policemen - to the process for the hate crime against Britani Jaqueline. All are charged with the crimes of enforced disappearance, abuse of authority and qualified homicide.
