The mayor of the orange training has indicated that "that person should not be there for their own physical integrity, and was also inspecting a public domain very protected, collecting assets and depositing them in a black fridge, therefore committing an alleged crime against the cultural and historical heritage of Cartagena ".

This German citizen, on vacation in Cartagena and without a criminal record, has today recognized the facts that are imputed to him and has reached an agreement with the judicial administration that has not transpired.

"It is not the first time that our deposits are depleted by individuals who individually or organized are dedicated to archaeological pillaging for fraudulent sale through the Internet, or other channels that are often used in the black market," reported Ana Rama who recalled that in the April and June Plenary, his Municipal Group denounced the abandonment of the Molinete Archaeological Park and warned that the fence that delimits its outline was open and allowed access to the mill of San Cristóbal ".

The councilor took photos and recorded a video of the events to graphically document what was happening.

Citizens demand the PSOE Government to once and for all arrange the area of ​​the perimeter fence that gives access to the Mill of San Cristóbal and hillside of the Molinete that falls on Morería Baja and the relevant security cameras are installed, "we are not going to stop this criminal phenomenon but the harder we put it to the spoilers better, "says Rama.

Situation debated in the plenary session of April and June

The Councilor for Citizens asked for explanations in June for the security and maintenance conditions of the Molinete archaeological park.

The orange formation considers that the place "is in a state of complete abandonment".

Rama, believes that "just walk around it to appreciate the lack of maintenance in terms of cleaning and gardening, the graffiti and dirt found in its heritage remains, highlighting the interior of the mill and the Temple of the Syrian goddess Atargatis II century before Christ ".

Cs also asked about the operation of the security cameras, for the actions related to gardening and trees and for the protection measures for the mosaic located in the Atargatis goddess' aedicule, since the surrounding fence allows access to it .

In addition, Cs wanted to know if the municipal government has raised the value of the perimeter of the mill of San Cristóbal, where the structures of castellum aquae are located and which was excluded from the archaeological park.

The councilor responsible for the area of ​​Culture, David Martinez admitted many of the problems detected and said that the Government of Cartagena is preparing a plan for the landscape adaptation of the environment, the replanting of native trees and tree species, more security cameras, and better protection systems for some of the elements that the park contains, "but it is not enough nor is it at the height of what this archaeological treasure deserves," Rama concludes.
