Announces "a campaign of public denunciation and support for the people of Seville who are suffering squatting", and asserts that "with VOX in the municipal government the phenomenon of squatting would be eradicated in months"
Encourages the Local Police in Seville to "act quickly and forcefully in the event of squatter complaints"
Seville, July 29, 2020. The Municipal VOX Group at the Seville City Council denounces the alarming increase in squatting cases in Seville, a phenomenon that has reached 41 cases a day in Spain, and that has turned the province of Seville in the second with the most usurpations of properties nationwide after Barcelona.
The VOX spokesperson at the Seville City Council, Cristina Peláez, has stated that "from VOX we have been denouncing this problem since its inception, proposing in our programs forceful measures to eradicate it, and that now it seems that other parties seem to support ".
Peláez has stated that “VOX proposes the eviction of the squatters in a matter of hours by the police themselves, and that squatting is considered a crime in the Penal Code, which carries penalties of 1 to 3 years in prison ”and recalled that the VOX Parliamentary Group in the Congress of Deputies has registered this proposal this week, which has been supported by the PP and Cs respectively
"VOX is ahead of the solutions demanded by the Spanish and then the rest of the parties join, welcome even if it is delayed by several legislatures. "
Cristina Peláez has mentioned recent cases of squatting in Seville, which show that "Seville, and its neighborhoods, are becoming the preferred target of these mafias"Without going any further" this past weekend, the local police evicted criminals who wanted to squatter the home of a neighbor in the Amate neighborhood, who was away from home for a few days because he had had a surgical intervention ”, in the same way” we have received neighborhood complaints of multi-storey buildings totally squatted in the middle of Feria street, specifically at 156, with the light hooked on public lighting, the neighborhood is restless and unprotected in the face of these events ”, Also in the Tardón where the owners of an apartment are on the street while the squatters are fighting for their respects. We also have problems in the Northern District, "where our members have filed complaints and eviction proposals of even lots, thanks to our impulse, they were finally evicted"
"The work of our District coordinators shows that our party is aware of what is happening in each neighborhood, square and street of our city, and complaints of squatting cases come to us every day and in more and more Districts ”.
The VOX campaign against squatting in Seville and its province has been running for weeks and has already reaped some victories, although much work remains to be done, Cristina Peláez recalled that "at the provincial level we have brought anti-squatter proposals to the Provincial Government on the initiative of our spokesperson Rafael García Ortiz, who has also promoted actions against squatting in municipalities such as Gines, Espartinas, Umbrete, Sanlúcar la Mayor, Coria del Río, Camas or Bormujos, many of which have even led to the recovery of their homes by the affected families, thanks to the action of public denunciation of the councilmen, VOX coordinators in said municipalities and our mentioned spokesperson in the Provincial Delegation ”.
At the Seville City Council VOX made it clear to the communists in plenary that squatting is an "attack on the right to property of the Spanish, and that was not a right, as defended the expired left, but a usurpation that should be punished criminally ", said Cristina Peláez, who concludes that" VOX in the Seville City Council will be the voice of all the neighbors victims of the mafias dedicated to this scourge of the squatting that devastates our cities, we will denounce it, we will campaign in the streets and neighborhoods, we will be with the neighbors until they recover their properties, and we will not stop until the law is changed"And as our President Santiago Abascal rightly says," Police officers can evict squatters "with a kick in the ass", without having to go to the property registry or to a judicial proceeding.
