MADRID, August 11 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The spokeswoman for the PP in the European Parliament, Dolors Montserrat, presented in Brussels an initiative for the European Union to insist on Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez in order to protect private property with “concrete and effective measures” against “illegal measures” by mafias occupying homes that operate in Spain.
This comes after the PP submitted legislation to the Chamber of Deputies to tackle the problem, which Montserrat has called “very necessary” given the “continuous violations” of property rights suffered by citizens in Spain. put them in extreme and really dramatic situations in many cases”.
In a statement collected by Europa Press, the PP points out that occupation is a phenomenon that has increased by 7 in recent years and that by September last year it had increased by up to 18 percent in Spain.
“Either you’re with the Spanish homeowners and renters who obey the law, or you’re with the squatters. You have to make a decision,” Montserrat said.
QUESTION OF SOCIAL JUSTICE
The PP spokeswoman, who is also President of the European Parliament’s Committee on Petitions, asked the European Commission last April to investigate illegal squatting in Spain, as far as her statements are concerned, so that “we can know as soon as possible” is the result of this investigation by the municipal council.
“It is a matter of social justice to protect private property from occupations, and Sánchez has a great opportunity to help those who really need it by adopting this PP proposal for an anti-occupation law,” he said.
Additionally, the spokeswoman has insisted that the crime and occupation mafias “cannot roam free” while citizens “live in fear” as they see they can destroy their homes, and “with a lifetime of effort and sacrifice.” Ultimately, it is about ensuring the rule of law, which “is the basis of our democracy,” he concluded.
