A young girl from Paraguay had to go through a plastic surgery of her face and other body parts because her jealous husband punched her every time someone liked her pictures on Facebook.
Adolfina Camelli Ortigoza, 21, was saved more than a week ago from her home, where she was held captive by Pedro Heriberto Galeano, her husband. The police say her husband, who is 11 years elder to her, would hit her constantly because of which her face, arms and other body parts are bruised and are no more in their natural shape.
The Daily Mail reports:
“Camelli was so disfigured by the violence she wasn’t able to recognised herself after being shown photos of herself after being beaten.She underwent reconstruction operations of the nasal septum and lips.”
Arnaldo Martinez, Camelli’s lawyer, alleges Galeano would get angry and violent whenever one of her friends on Facebook reacted to any of her posts or liked her photos. Galeano, adds Martinez, also took control of her Facebook page and posted her pictures; and if they received a ‘like’, he would beat her because of which Camelli developed a fear of Facebook’s notifications.
Her friends had no idea that every time they reacted to something she wrote or posted, she would be brutally beaten. Martinez told The Daily Mail:
“Her mouth was all broken, she was very damaged, her skin was hanging off because of the blows. He controlled the victim’s social networking sites, he controlled the messages and photos, and for every ‘like’ she received from her friends, the woman received a beating because he accused her of having a relationship with them. She only didn’t lose her teeth because he would put a cloth in her mouth so that she would not scream during the brutal beatings that she suffered daily.”
Camelli was rescued only after Galeano’s father reported his violent son to the police, who arrested and charged him with attempted femicide, deprivation of liberty, and coercion [crimes which carry a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison].
