From the Cabildo today
The president convenes the Insular Security Table to take stock of the infractions during level 4 of the health alert
Corujo: “We will continue to act firmly to stop the behavior of those who violate the rules with irresponsible and unsupportive behaviors that put not only their lives at risk, but those of others, and threaten the economic model that we have
The president of the Cabildo of Lanzarote, Mar ed Dolores Corujo, met with the Director General of Security and Emergency of the Canary Islands Government, Gustavo Armas, and the insular director of the Administration of the State, Juan Ramon Perez, in which they discussed the epidemiological situation of Lanzarote, and assessed the result of the joint police action carried out in public spaces on the island. Also present were the Minister of Security and Emergencies of the First Insular Institution, Francisco Aparicio, as well as the captain of the Civil Guard, National Police commissioner, fire chief and regional police commissioner, and the local police chiefs of the seven municipalities on the island via telematics.
Corujo, Armas and Pérez addressed “with special concern” the high degree of incidents that are being registered on weekends, especially against bottles and meetings that exceeded the established maximum capacity. In the past, the State Security Forces processed 200 complaints, one of them serious, for failing to comply with the regulations established since Lanzarote entered level 4 of health alert.
Corujo conveyed his personal gratitude for the joint work being carried out by the State Security Forces. “It is admirable to see them working in a coordinated manner to tackle this pandemic. I am aware that they do not spare hours of work and effort to try to enforce a regulation designed to save lives ”.
After the meeting, the president announced that “we will continue to act firmly to stop the behavior of those who violate the rules with irresponsible and unsupportive behaviors that put at risk not only their lives, but those of others, and the economic model that we have created between everybody”.
The director of Security and Emergencies of the Government of the Canary Islands, Gustavo Armas, also highlighted “the high degree of coordination” that is taking place between the State Security Forces, and put all the resources of the Autonomous Executive at the disposal of the institutions of the island. “In these delicate moments, we must all go together to get Lanzarote out of the situation it is in,” he explained.
Juan Ramón Pérez, insular director of the State Administration, for his part, encouraged the population to act “responsibly and comply with, and enforce, the health regulations established on the island, which have passed in a very short space of time from level 1 to 4 of health alert ”.
