Renata who lives in Teixeira de Freitas, north east Brazil, said: “Once again I have suffered physical aggression over a trivial matter, arguments and lies.

“But it doesn’t matter whether I am wrong or he is wrong, nothing justifies a man beating a woman, nothing, nothing, nothing.

Shaking her head and trying to hold back tears as she recorded her ordeal, Renata explained: “If I go to the police station to file a complaint under the Maria da Penha law they will go after him, he will be arrested one day and the next day he will be out.

“He has vowed millions of times before to kill me, and I don’t doubt he will do this. I’ve already been beaten so I’ve decided not to bother reporting the case.”
