One of the proposals that the Popular Party (PP) has launched from Mataró (Maresme) will take shape through a proposal that its parliamentary group will send to the Generalitat. It is about creating an anti-squatting office like the one recently promoted by the Community of Madrid.
In a meeting in Parliament, the president of the PP in Catalonia, Alejandro Fernández, and the president of the local Mataró group, Cristian Escribano, announced that the proposed anti-squatters office will be made up of Mossos and local police, legally trained, and a 24-hour telephone service all year round.
From the technical office, those affected by illegal occupations would be informed about how to process the corresponding complaint, but it would also serve to speed up police intervention in the event that the raid is taking place at that time.
Cristian Escribano assures that the proposal "is a great measure to combat the occupations" for which he calls on all the political parties represented in the Parliament of Catalonia "to approve it". The Mataró leader asserted that "here there are no ambiguities, or you are with the squatters or with the neighbors and homeowners."
