THE mayor of Daya Nueva, Maria Teresa Martinez, has rejected claims of harassment from the police.
The CSIF union claims officials of the local police force are under “constant pressures, threats and harassment” by the government-led team, which has led to two agents taking time off work. They complain of pay cuts and that they have been pressured to perform overtime for free, which Martinez denies. She added that a fall in the gross salary of €260 has not been the will of the government team.
There are currently five officers in Daya Nueva, which Martinez admitted was low, but said the security of the town was guaranteed.
Opposition parties have called for a full meeting to be convened on the situation and are waiting on a date to be set.
