El testimonio único de la víctima en el proceso penal desde la perspectiva de género

Ramírez Ortiz, José Luis
The author of this paper analyses if gender perspective is useful in criminal proceedings to asses the single victim’s testimony in order to reach a conviction. The conclusion is negative. Gender perspective provides tools to evaluate evidence without prejudices, but in spite of the epistemic values of those tools, the uncorroborated evidence of a single witness is not sufficient, in any case, for proof of guilt in a criminal proceeding as it cannot distort the presumption of innocence. However, the author highlights that in the pretrial investigation, gender perspective acquires a remarkable heuristic utility, both to adequately construct the inculpatory hypotheses and to collect evidence that will be use to corroborate the witness testimony in the future trial ​
