- He asserts that “it is not the first time, nor will it be the last, that we raise our voice in defense of security in Marchena, a basic and essential service that the authorities are obliged to ensure to citizens, absent due to the conflict that the mayor maintains with the Local Police "
- He regrets that “for the mayor, and for the PSOE, Marchena is a second division municipality and it is not. The freedom of the marcheneros begins when their security is guaranteed and here, security is conspicuous by its absence and those responsible have names, surnames and political colors "
Seville, September 30, 2020. The VOX deputy in the Congress of Deputies for Seville, Reyes Romero, has registered a question to be answered by the Government in relation to the serious public order situation that is registered in the Sevillian town of Marchena.
In the explanatory statement, Romero assures that "the town of Marchena is living in recent times serious problems of public order mainly due to the long conflict between the Mayor of the city and the local police. This has a very small staff and in permanent confrontation with the municipal authority due to lack of dialogue on the part of the latter ”.
The vice-president of Social Affairs of VOX also recalls that “the Civil Guard post in Marchena has few troops and they have to cover a region of enormous extension, so it has little public presence. In this context, se numerous robberies are taking place in rural properties, and in the very streets of the city there has been a noticeable increase in crime, with organized gangs operating almost open-ended. All this, in a context marked by the restrictions on mobility imposed by COVID 19 that would require a greater presence of public order agents in order to ensure the safety of the marcheneros ”.
Reyes Romero has questioned the Government “about the forecasts of the Ministry of the Interior to reinforce the security of a town that has spent months with almost no police presence on its streets”. In this respect, he has warned that "lthe marcheneros are supporting with certain heroism the total absence of security in Marchena, given the laziness of the municipal authorities who prefer not to bother the Government of Pedro Sánchez with these types of issues that they consider secondary, because otherwise it is not understood that a municipality like Marchena does not have a minimum of security".
"The residents of Marchena are sold, they are aware of reality in the same way that heCriminals know that this municipality is fertile ground for illicit activity as it will be difficult for them to meet a Police or a Civil Guard on their way ”.
The VOX deputy for Seville has asserted that “it is not the first time, nor will it be the last, that we raise our voice in defense of security in Marchena, a basic and essential service that the authorities are obliged to ensure to citizens. It would seem that for the mayor, and for the PSOE, Marchena is a second division municipality and it is not. The freedom of the marcheneros begins when their safety is guaranteed and here, security is conspicuous by its absence and those responsible have full names and political colors ”, he concluded.
