Entre Ríos media published a new list of those who would own the land where the fires occur on the islands off Rosario. After the Federal Court No. 2 of Paraná turned the first offices over to seven owners of the lots where the burning that affected the wetlands since the beginning of the year and made the Rosario air unbreathable occurred, other incumbents have now appeared. Meanwhile, yesterday Rosario again suffered a sultry day due to forest fires on the islands.

The transcended indicate that the aerial registration was already elevated by the national body to the Entre Ríos authorities, who are in charge of comparing the results with satellite images that show the georeferential positioning. This allows the owners of the fields to be identified in order to assess whether they are due a fine at the provincial level. But in turn, according to the environmental news portal Era Verde, the data will also be turned to the Federal Justice, where the criminal case is processed.

Take care

Last Friday, the Federal Court of Appeals in Rosario issued precautionary measures on the burning of grasslands that are taking place on the islands. The resolution orders the city of Victoria and the province of Entre Ríos to stop the fires for the next six months. On Saturday, self-convened citizens cut the bridge across the Paraná River, fed up with the smoke that floods the city. Almost as a provocation, at the same time flames appeared in the area of ​​the wetland located in front of the urban area.

Yesterday, in the framework of another day in which several igneous foci appeared on the Entre Ríos side, with dense columns of smoke reaching Rosario and other towns located on the Santa Fe coast, Mayor Pablo Javkin showed his anger on social networks, like many Rosario people, and asked the neighboring province to take action on the matter. “Dozens of brigadistas risking their lives, hydrant planes, helicopters and ships that cost us a fortune. More than the entry of Rosario, what should prevent Entre Ríos is this. And Justice has to put those responsible in jail, ”the head of the Palace of Lions tweeted.

The local Justice ordered not to authorize fires

Last Friday, the Rosario government ordered Entre Ríos not to authorize controlled fires for the next 6 months on the islands, and the Nation to carry out a permanent system of preventive control over burning. The decision of the Federal Court of Appeals of Rosario issued precautionary measures in a case originated by an environmental collective action initiated by the lawyer Marcos Peyrano.

As Aníbal Pineda, president of the Chamber, explained to the Capital, there are two types of burning on the islands: “One is the controlled action that the province of Entre Ríos authorizes by law, administratively, and the other is directly illegal, practiced by some land holders ”, he said.

In the ruling, the Chamber suspended administratively authorized burns and imposed on the national Executive Power, through National Parks and the National Fire Management Plan, the obligation to carry out permanent and preventive control on the islands to detect burns in a formal manner. early. In addition, he declared himself incompetent on the amparo and sent the file to the Supreme Court of the Nation.

It is that the framework of action of the Rosario government is, although the worst affected are the residents of this city, very limited. Who should prevent fires is the Executive Power of Entre Ríos. And who has to condemn that crime is the Justice of that province. “Burning is a crime and the jurisdiction to intervene, make it cease and eventually condemn is Entre Ríos. The Justice of Rosario does not have jurisdiction to do so, “said the magistrate.
