The Government pointed to the lack of security of companies, after a new attack on the waterfront of Concepción and that affected a machine for the work of the new Railway Bridge.
The presidential delegate of the Bío Bío region, Daniela Dresdner, pointed to the lack of security measures by the company in charge of the works on the new railway bridge, after the arson attack that took place in the premises and that affected a backhoe on the Concepción waterfront.
The event occurred before 06:00 this Tuesday, about 800 meters from the Regional Government and two kilometers from the Plaza de Armas.
It corresponds to the second arson attack in a week that took place on the Concepción waterfront.
Along with condemning this new attack, the delegate added that “we are going to make available all the tools we have for the persecution of those who are committing these crimes in our cities”.
Attack in Concepción: Guardia was not certified
Daniela Dresdner emphasized that the call for safety is for everyone, even summoning the company in charge of the works. He also said that the machinery was uncovered, despite the fact that they had previously spoken with the company to reinforce security, adding that even the guard in charge of the property was not certified and that there is no operating directive.
During the day of this Tuesday, the Government will meet with the seremis and police to reinforce the security of the works that are carried out in the Greater Concepción. After that, they will meet with the companies to reinforce this matter.
The owner of the machine that was damaged during the attack requested the presence of armed guards, more police or military personnel at the work sites, to which the delegate replied that “like everyone, very well we know, we have a finite number of police officers, and they have many tasks to fulfill, that is why I say that the task of security is a collective task”.
Another point that the delegate emphasized is that it is not possible to draw conclusions as to which are the gangs that commit this type of act, or if they are related to issues of the South Macrozone, since the machines were next to the street, without greater security.
As Daniela Dresdner emphasized, in conversation with the director of EFE, he told her that this attack will not represent delays in the work.
