Adolfina Camelli Ortigoza, 21, a Paraguayan woman has been forced to undergo reconstructive surgery on her face after her jealous husband punched her every time someone ‘liked’ her pictures on Facebook.
Police said Adolfina had been held against her will in the couple’s home and was subjected to constant beatings by her 32-year-old husband.
By the time the police were finally alerted, Ms. Ortigoza had been so badly abused, that her body and face were disfigured and she required extensive surgery.
Pedro Heriberto Galeano, the woman’s lawyer said her partner would become violent when anyone liked the photos she posted of herself on Facebook. She was beaten every time one of her friends on Facebook reacted to any of her posts.
Galeano then took control of her Facebook page and would post pictures of her, and continued to punch and kick her for every ‘like’ the posts received.
Lawyer Arnaldo Martinez said Adolfina from Nemby near Asuncion, Paraguay, would dread a notification telling her that someone had reacted or commented on a post.
Her friends had no idea that this was happening.
He said: ‘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.’
Mr. Martinez said she did not 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.’
It was the man’s father who finally reported his violent son to the police believing the woman would die following the last beating she received.
Adolfina was so disfigured she wasn’t able to recognize herself after being shown photos of herself. She underwent reconstruction operations of the nasal septum and lips.
Galeano was charged with attempted femicide, deprivation of liberty and coercion, crimes which carry a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison.
