With concern, this is how the representative of Cúcuta Yesid Blanco sees the day-to-day life of the city. Every new dawn the Metropolitan Area has between 2 and 3 violent deaths, robberies, extortions and even kidnappings. “It is a situation that becomes more acute every day. “We continue to hear about cases of extortion, which is the daily bread of Cucuteños.”
Blanco, like many of the Cucuteños, pointed out that it is difficult to know that one cannot go out into the streets with peace of mind, because at any time and in any place, an unfortunate event can occur. “A grenade can fall on the feet, a dismembered person can appear and many more situations that frighten the Cucuteño community.”
The representative of the Public Ministry called on the elected mayor of the city, Jorge Acevedo, to give priority to this situation “because from here all the aspects emerge for progress to occur in the city. If we have good security, we have good employment, we end informality.”
The representative asked to look for new strategies to change the reality of the northern Santander capital, since the multiple strategies delivered by the local, regional and national authorities have not given greater results.
