The forest fires are “controlled and stabilized”, except for one fire registered in Parres and another in Belmonte de Miranda
The president of the Principality of AsturiasThe socialist, Adrian Barbn, insisted this Saturday that the forest fires that have ravaged the region since Wednesday are something “premeditated and organized.” “I want to make it very clear that the responsibility lies with those who light the fuse, with those who have acted like what they are, authentic terrorists,” said Barbn, who has indicated that “he wants to see people in jail for what has happened.” .
Barbn has appeared at a press conference after the meeting held in La Morgal in which the mayors of the municipalities affected by the fire have participated via telematics. There they have once again insisted that the full weight of the law must fall against those who have caused this situation.
“When I talk about terrorists, I’m talking about criminals who have to be investigated, who have to be detected, who have to be identified and who we want to make them pay with all the force that the laws impose,” Barbn said. , which has affected that although there has been luck and there have been no deaths, the truth is that “we have to be aware that there could have been hundreds of deaths throughout these days.”
As an example that we are dealing with premeditated and organized actions, he has cited the fire of the Naranco in Oviedowhere it was lit in 12 points at a time, “what was done to endanger the houses.”
“Around a larger fire, new fires appeared that had nothing to do with the wind and that sought to worsen the situation in many points,” said Barbn, who has appealed to the public so that if they have suspicions, they should not be afraid and collaborate to find to the guilty.
Regarding the type of damage and what is sought with these actions, Barbn has said that it is “something we do not know.” “There are theories for all tastes, but we must wait for specific data from the investigations,” the Asturian president stressed, adding that what is clear is that they are criminals who have put the lives of hundreds of people at risk.
He has once again stressed that the priority that has been set these days has been that of “life, houses and towns”. “Save lives, save houses and save towns”, he said and thanked all the media, the forces that have turned to those priorities.
