The President of the Principality of Asturias, the socialist Adrián Barbónhas insisted this Saturday that the forest fires that have ravaged the region since Wednesday is something “premeditated and organized”. “I want to make it very clear that the responsibility lies with those who light the fuse, with those who have acted as they are, real terrorists”Barbón has said that he has indicated that “he wants to see people in jail for what has happened.”

Barbón has appeared at a press conference after the meeting held in La Morgal in which the mayors of the municipalities affected by the fire have participated via telematics. There, they once again insisted that the full weight of the law must fall against those who have caused this situation.

“When I speak of terrorists, I speak of criminals who must be investigated, who must be detected, those that must be identified and those that we want to make pay with all the force that the laws impose“, Barbón has said, who has stressed that although there has been luck and there have been no deaths, the truth is that” we have to be aware that there could have been hundreds of deaths throughout these days.

As an example that we are facing premeditated and organized actions, he has given as an example the Naranco fire in Oviedo, where it was lit at twelve points at once, “what was done to endanger the houses”.

“Around a greater fire new fires appeared that had nothing to do with the wind and that they were seeking to escalate the situation on many points”, said Barbón who has appealed to the public so that if they have suspicions they should not be afraid and collaborate to find the culprits.

Regarding the type of damage and what is sought with these actions, Barbón has said that it is “something we don’t know.” “There are theories for all tastes, but we must wait for specific data from the investigations,” the Asturian president stressed, adding that what is clear is that they are criminals who have put the lives of hundreds of people at risk.

The president has highlighted that today it seems that the situation is changing yeis favoring control of the situation and he has stated that once what happened is analyzed, the formula should be sought to see how to stop these criminals when this happens because they put us all in a high-risk situation.

He has once again stressed that the priority has been marked these days has been that of “life, houses and towns”. “Save lives, save houses and save towns”, He has said and has thanked all the media, the forces that have turned to those priorities. The president has indicated that it has been difficult to coordinate so many troops at once in a way that was useful.
