Maria Dolores, agent of the Mossos d’Esquadra 43 years old, left minutes before 11 at night this Thursday from the police station of Esplugas de Llobregat (Barcelona). She had finished another long day serving the Regional Area of Operational Resources (ARRO), where she was stationed. But on the way to her home, where her husband -also Mosso- and her 2 and 5-year-old children were waiting for her, misfortune crossed her path. A drunk driver collided with her vehicle and was killed. This Friday a minute of silence was observed for Loli, as he was known among his colleagues, but the Mossos leadership has not acceded to another of his requests: that the flag of the police station be flown at half mast. The internal outrage is considerable. «It was made up to the Companys anniversary»They remember.
«The flags will remain raised». The order arrived by internal mail at the Mossos police stations early in the morning, announcing the death of María Dolores and recalling that it would be carried out. a minute of silence At 12 in the morning. However, the tagline of the flag was what set people on fire at the Esplugas police station where the agent worked and from where she left only a few hours before heading to her tragic end.
His colleagues from the police station, as OKDIARIO has learned, asked their commanders to allow the flag to be lowered at half-mast as a sign of mourning. Since it would not be done in all police centers, at least in that police station “in which Loli had spent so many hours,” they recall. But again, negative answer. The flags they stayed as they were.
“The outrage is maximum. For her, but also for her husband, who is a sergeant of the corps. His brother and brother-in-law are too. The outrage is for them “, explain Mossos agents from that Esplugas police station.
«The father, who is a partner, has lost his wife and is left with two minors aged 2 and 5 in his care. A boy and a girl. The least that was expected was that the flag would be lowered for a moment to honor his memory. And that of all his relatives, who are members of the body, “his colleagues insisted indignantly.
It was made by companys
The anger becomes even more evident when the agents remember that on other occasions it has been done. It happened last October, when the 80th anniversary of the execution of Lluís Companys, the one who was president of the Generalitat between 1934 and 1940. The Generalitat to honor the independence figure, ordered that the Spanish and Catalan flags be waved at half-staff in all police stations. Without exception. A gesture that this Friday they have denied to the deceased agent.
According to the sources consulted, the agents even sent the request to Eduard Sallent, command of the Mossos who occupied the headquarters of the police force until Major José Luis Trapero regained his post. Sallent had moved to Esplugas to accompany the minute of silence. But not for those.
A drunk driver
The agent died this Thursday when her vehicle hit a passenger car whose driver, with symptoms of drunkenness and without a driving license, fled on foot.
The Mossos d’Esquadra initiated a wide device in the vicinity of the accident area to try to locate the fled driver, first next to the Llobregat river and then in nearby urbanizations. Finally, the escaped driver was located at four in the morning and, once he was arrested, he was transferred to the Martorell Hospital.
The Mossos have released two separate messages, in one of which they specify that the escaped driver who caused the accident “was drunk and did not have a driving license.”
They also “deeply regret the death of our colleague Loli, from the ARRO Metro Sur, when she was returning home after working on an accident caused by a drunk driver.” “A big hug to the family, friends and colleagues”, concludes the message.
