Criminals have control of the markets, and the police do nothing, he says….
MERIDA — The city’s main markets, the Lucas de Gálvez and San Benito markets, continue to suffer a significant number of problems that have not been solved by the municipal authorities.
Dirty spaces, lack of drinking water, uncontrolled alcohol sales in the surrounding areas, insecurity, mafias that have taken over the streets nearby and that extort high sums of money as “Derecho de Piso” to those who want to sell their products, are just a few of the many problems that afflict these two important centers of supply. Every three years the market merchants receive the electoral promises of those who aspire to lead the Yucatecan capital, but once installed in government they forget their commitments with the market renters and users.
Councilman Alfonso Seguí Isaac referred to the latest fights that occurred in the San Benito market, to which the Municipal Police did not respond at all.
The municipal and private security elements hired to patrol the two main markets of the city are totally absent, which allows criminals to keep committing these illicit acts, said Councilman Seguí Isaac.
In recent days at a confrontation in the San Benito Market no police element intervened to stop it, and municipal authorities said that the commander of the Municipal Police acknowledged that there were no uniformed elements nearby.
Segui Isaac said that if police agents make the necessary rounds in the place, it would reduce crime, however for more than two years police have not provided the vigilance that merchants and councilors have asked.
