IU-Greens demands a "political solution" to those affected by the earthquakes that are asked to return the aid (18/07/2017)

Councilors Pedro Sosa and Gloria Martín have announced that their training will present a motion to the next Municipal Plenary to "archiven" the cases in which technicians of the Administration verify that the repair works are carried out

Izquierda Unida-Verdes de Lorca will lead the solutions proposed to those affected by the request of the Autonomous Community of the Region of Murcia (CARM) to return the subsidies granted to address the damages caused in housing after the earthquakes suffered in Lorca on 11 May 2011.

This training, which has been carrying out two years of personal advice to those affected, will present a motion to the next Municipal Plenary in which they will request that technicians of the Administration carry out a new visit to verify the repair works carried out, explained its spokesman Pedro Soda.

"We understand that the cases in which the Administration verifies that the repairs have been carried out must be filed and stop disturbing the neighbors with repeated requests for invoices," Sosa said.

The municipal spokesman of IU-Greens demanded that other political groups represented in the City Council stop "criminalizing" those affected by earthquakes, as "a huge percentage spent the money from subsidies, which sometimes fell short , In arranging their houses to be able to return to them ".

Sosa recalled that IU-Greens was the first political party to alert about sending mass communications and making themselves available to those affected to facilitate the allegations to that requirement.

Therefore, he welcomed the fact that the rest "now get on the car" despite the fact that at first they preferred to sow the shadow of the doubt about the victims instead of pointing to the "disdain" of CARM as the true responsible of This "messy".

Already in 2011, IU-Verdes requested a public tutelage of the entire reconstruction process through the public company of Soil and Housing (SUVILOR), including subsidies and aids, which should have gone to an account invested between the Administration And those affected so that not only their control but also a "rational, integral and participatory" execution of the works were facilitated.

"Today we could have neighborhoods of modernity, based on energy saving, pedestrianization of vials with the aim of promoting accessibility, as well as the liberation of public space to create more facilities for culture and leisure that favor activities that energize the Social activity, "Sosa said.

Instead, governments left to the affected the "very complex" reconstruction process that continues to affect them six years later through innumerable administrative and bureaucratic obstacles.

Irregular communications

For its part, the Councilor of IU-Greens, Gloria Martín, has denounced that much of the communications that are being received by those affected are irregular from an administrative point of view.

"In addition to not mentioning the date of issue, no mention is made of the agreement by which CARM initiates the procedure for verification and reimbursement of subsidies or the body that attributes it. Effect has the breach of the agreement or the resources to which the affected are entitled, "Martín explained.

The mayor of IU-Verdes also considered that the action of the CARM is "extemporaneous" since, according to the General Law of Grants, the term of prescription of the right of the Administration to liquidate the refund the subsidy is of four years, that begin To be counted six months after the completion of the works, an end that the affected can demonstrate with invoices or declarations of witnesses.

While the CARM shows an "absolute opacity" when it comes to spending the funds received by Lorca for the recovery of earthquakes, using part of the money in works that have nothing to do with earthquakes, such as repairing roads in Mazarrón , "Allows luxury to force the victims to remove Rome with Santiago to look for invoices that date back almost 6 years," said Martin.

In that sense, he recalled that IU-Verdes has for years been demanding, in vain, an audit of the actions carried out by the EIB and that all the figures related to the recovery after the earthquakes are provided.

For this reason, it was asked who the regional government of Lorca Fernando López Miras intends to serve as an example. He demanded a "political solution" to this question.

Martín also pointed out that if the neighbors' needs are met and counseling in favor of those who are "absolutely uninformed and unprotected" is "populist", then "we are", in reference to the criticisms made by the PSOE to the Work that these days carried out the human team of Izquierda United-Greens in Lorca.

"I would rather be embarrassed to ask for flexibility for the return of subsidies knowing that in the vast majority of cases, the obligation to repay the money has been prescribed," Martín said.

An attitude similar to that maintained by the local government team of the PP.

"They tell us that they are doing everything they can to solve a situation that affects more than 800 families, when they have, in fact, given instructions for neighbors who come to register allegations to the One-Stop Window to be sent to the Office of the Earthquake where they What they do is to put on the table a self-assessment form to pay, without further advice, "denounced the mayor of IU-Greens.
