The councilor for VOX in the Benalmádena City Council, Gema Carrillo, has shown her rejection of the official mourning for the more than 27,000 victims of the coronavirus that will end on Sunday, May 17, after just three days.
The councilor had sent a request last April 21 for the official mourning to be declared until the pandemic was overcome "as a sign of pain for the victims of the coronavirus." Similarly, Carrillo sent a request directly to the mayor so that he was taken into account as soon as possible.
Finally, the City Council decreed three days of official mourning, something that the councilor considers "absolutely insufficient", explains Carrillo.
Thus, he denounces that while the official mourning in the municipality has “expiration”, an exhibition on historical memory is kept out of time, which should have ended on March 15, and whose cost for the residents of Benalmádena exceeded the 14,000 euros.
"It shows a total lack of empathy for the pain of the victims of the virus and their families and it is clear that the left only cares for a part of the victims," denounces the councilor.
