The mercantile Cartagena Parque SA charged with the death of birds in the Zinsa ponds


The Court of Instruction number 5 of Cartagena has accused the commercial company Cartagena Parque SA for allegedly maintaining contaminated waters in the Zinsa ponds, which have caused the death of numerous native birds in the area.

The investigating judge assures that these waters pose a “serious” risk to health since heavy metals are concentrated in them that exceed “millions of times” the maximum allowed limit.

Taking into account the request of the Public Prosecutor’s Office that Cartagena Parque SA “proceed to the immediate sealing” of the deposits, the SEPRONA reports, which warn of the danger of the rupture of the deposits, the death of birds and the contamination of the Mar Menor; and the complaints from the Torreciega Neighborhood Association, the judge has ordered that the Ministry of Water, Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Environment contribute its project of emptying and sealing the area.

It has been 3 years since the Ministry of Water, Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and the Environment gave the company 10 days in 2019 to remove waste, so the Prosecutor’s Office denounces a questionable crime of disobedience on the part of the company. The existence of these contaminated waters was made public after the complaint made by the researcher José Matías Peñas and the dissemination of a video with dead birds in November 2029. Already in 2015, the EQUO Cartagena party demanded that the municipality of the municipality “clarify and investigate the responsibilities of companies and administrations in order to clarify who and to what extent should finance decontamination ”
