BARBATE (CÁDIZ), Feb. 12 (EUROPA PRESS) -
The president of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, expressed this Monday in Barbate (Cádiz) his regret for the "murder" of two civil guards when they were run over by a drug boat and has announced that he will demand in Congress and the Senate that, Immediately, the province of Cádiz be declared a Special Singularity Zone, and that the National Court take on summaries of especially serious cases related to crime and organized crime and drug trafficking in Cádiz municipalities, for which a modification of the Law will be proposed. Organic of the Judicial Power.
This is how Núñez Feijóo spoke in an appearance before the media, in which he was not subjected to questions, on the occasion of a visit to Barbate to hold meetings with unions and associations of the State Security Forces and Bodies and with mayors of the province of Cádiz. At 12:00 p.m., he participated in the minute of silence in front of the Barbate City Council, where he was accompanied, among others, by the counselor of the Presidency, Interior, Social Dialogue and Administrative Simplification of the Junta de Andalucía, Antonio Sanz.
He has insisted on demanding the resignation of the Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, pointing out that if he does not do so, he should be dismissed by the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, whom he has reproached for having been watching during his years at the head of the Executive. to "the other side" in relation to what is happening with drug trafficking in the province of Cádiz. He has advised him to pay a visit to the Campo de Gibraltar area so that the mayors can explain what is happening and has criticized the fact that on Saturday night he went to a film "festival" (Goya Gala), despite to what happened in Barbate.
The leader of the PP has expressed his solidarity and condolences to the widows and orphans of the two civil guards "murdered" in an event that is a clear example of the "absolute inferiority" in which the state security forces and bodies find themselves. from the point of view of human and material resources against drug trafficking organizations.
He has indicated that the associations and unions with which he has met agree on the lack of resources and personnel, and on the difficulties that the security forces and bodies have today to fulfill their obligations, in addition to the lack of security they suffer. Feijóo has accused the Government of Pedro Sánchez of continually "neglecting" the claims for more material and human resources and reproached it for not having declared the province of Cádiz as a Special Singularity Area since 2018.
"We have been insisting for some time on the lack of authority in which the Police and Civil Guard agents are involved," indicated the leader of the PP, who has shown his concern about the "limited and dramatic situations" to which they look exposed. He has pointed out that the PP program contemplates the declaration of the province of Cádiz as a Special Singularity Area and as a "black spot" for the state security forces and bodies of all of Spain.
This will be demanded both in the Congress of Deputies and in the Senate, where it will succeed because the PP has an absolute majority in the Upper House, as Feijóo recalled in his appearance. He has indicated that this matter is agreed upon with the president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, with whom he spoke yesterday.
"We are not going to forget what has happened in Barbate and what is happening in Campo de Gibraltar and the province of Cádiz," said Núñez Feijóo, who added that this declaration of a Special Singularity Zone must entail the provision of units sufficient, benefits from a remuneration point of view, and material means.
Another proposal of the PP will be the modification of the Organic Law of the Judiciary so that the National Court takes charge of the summaries on especially serious cases that occur in the province of Cádiz related to organized crime and drug trafficking. He has pointed out that the National Court has means, experience, resources, judicial personnel and magistrates who are accustomed to acts of kale borroka, terrorism and organized crime.
He has defended that the prosecutors and judges in the area are working with absolute determination, but it is necessary to "transfer especially serious cases to the National Court so that they can be dealt with by magistrates who have experience in this type of acts of delinquency and organized crime." . "We will propose a specific modification of an article of the Organic Law of the Judiciary so that its summaries can be transferred to the National Court and, therefore, to give more security and greater protection to the security forces and bodies that detain the criminals and see that unfortunately they do not achieve the goals they pursue," Feijóo added.
He has insisted on demanding the resignation or dismissal of Grande-Marlaska, who tomorrow "cannot sit" in the Council of Ministers. "I would fail to fulfill my obligations as head of the opposition if I do not ask for Mr. Marlaska's dismissal," he noted.
