Spain: Proexport calls for better police surveillance in the fields

The president of the organization of horticultural producers and exporters, Proexport, Juan Marín, had a meeting this week with the Government Delegate in the Region of Murcia, Joaquín Bascuñana, to request better police surveillance for the sector given the significant increase in thefts.

According to a statement from the association, the meeting is taking place due to a complaint to the councillor of Agriculture, Antonio Cerdá, from Proexport members on 27 September, who reported the numerous thefts that were taking place in their firms and the huge economic damage that these entail.

The councillor Cerdá promised to arrange a meeting with the government delegate, who will be asked by Proexport's leaders for more security forces to become involved in the prosecution of these crimes, which are particularly prevalent in Campo de Cartagena and Valle del Guadalentín.

According to Marín, "our firms are suffering an increase of this type of crime at a time when the horticultural campaign is just starting, so we call for the Government Delegation to become involved to ensure effective action from security forces, as we suspect criminal gangs are behind these actions."

During the meeting, Proexport will also ask for information regarding the technical reports currently underway regarding the recent floods and torrential rains in the Region and will request financial aid for the farms that suffered the most damages.
