Carlos Mazón accuses Teresa Ribera of failing to send water to the Albufera

The president of the Generalitat, Carlos Mazón, has accused this Thursday the minister for the Ecological Transition, Teresa Ribera, of breaking her word regarding the arrival of water to La Albufera de València, which he has described as “very serious.” Specifically, he has denounced that yesterday the deadline to transfer 20 cubic hectometers of water from the Xùquer and Turia basins to the natural park expired.

During the control session in the plenary session of Les Corts Valencianes, the president explained that this Wednesday “a very serious deadline” was met, the one given by Minister Ribera regarding the provision of water for La Albufera, and “there will not be water” for the Valencian lake “after having promised it.” “He has broken the law, he has broken his word,” he lamented to demand from the socialist group: “Do something, because if it is for you, La Albufera, after lying, after abandoning it, will die.”

Mazón, who was responding to a question from the socialist ombudsman, José Muñoz, who has accused him of putting the Valencian Community “on the map of international shame” with his law “dignifying Francoism”, has asserted that this “yes” "It's a shame, save l'Albufera."
