Spanish Interior Ministry is paying around 300 euros to inmigrants when they are outed from Spain to Africa to prevent them from rioting when they are landed in their country of origin, according to El MUNDO’s police sources.That ws what happened in the flight to fly thtm to Guinea-Bissau that took place last Friday, in which 33 citizens were outed.
The policemen who went with them in the flight only were paid 120 euros for this service, less than half that was given to the illegal inmigrants, as denounces the Spanish Police Confederation (CEP) in Canary Islands.
The flight, with 33 citizens of Guinea-Bissau, 26 coming from Las Palmas and another 7 from Málaga, was early an odyssey. The agents found the airport shut, had to make a stop in Senegal and, after heavy negotiations, they succeeded and the authorities opened the airport to land the illegal inmigrants.
When they landed, each inmigrant was given 300 euros. Normally in these flights, inmigrants are not told about their destination and are lied telling them they are going to be flown to another Spanish city. To diminish their deception, Police give the inmigrants normally quantities between 100 and 300 euros.
The Government is carrying the inmigrants from Canary Islands, mostly to cities who voted for Popular Party in last elections mostly. Numbers are:
- Madrid, 3.527 subsaharans.
- Andalucía :Algeciras, 120; Málaga, 880
- Catalonia 350
- Murcia (282) y
- Comunidad Valenciana (241)
Except Algeciras and Catalonia, the rest of Autonomous Communities and cities are ruled by Popular Party.
We have to take into account Canary Islands have received in six months more than 7.500 illegal inmigrants, 2.700 more than last year in full.
State Secretary of Inmigration Consuelo Rumí denied that there has been 3.527 inmigrants flown to Madrid and said this number refers to foreginers who have being flown by Madrid to another destination. But she failed to answer whn asked about their destination or the number of inmigrants which have being flown to other cities.
