Since the port of Ceuta was closed on March 17 and the embarkation or disembarkation of passengers was prohibited, those who have traveled by ferry on the Ceuta-Algeciras line have required the express authorization of the Government Delegation to do so. However, as of today, the number of authorizations that have been issued in these almost two months is unknown.

Given the lack of information, the national representative of Vox for Ceuta, Teresa López, has registered in the Congress of Deputies a question addressed to the Government of the Nation to explain what is the reason for not wanting to give the figure of authorizations granted by Delegation in the Autonomous City of Ceuta. Likewise, the Ceuta parliamentarian asks how many have been granted to cross the Strait in both directions. Data that, in the case of Melilla, have been offered by the Government Delegation.

In the case of the other autonomous city, nearly 700 Melillenses have been authorized to return by boat from the peninsula, prioritizing patients derived from Ingesa. However, in Ceuta, according to local media reports, the Government delegate, Salvadora Mateos, has refused on more than one occasion to give the figures of people who have been authorized to travel to Algeciras or cross the Strait towards Ceuta.
