The organization explains that the couple was forced to stop paying rent more than a year ago due to the economic situation in which they were living, and that they “preferred to continue paying the remaining expenses, basic supplies, and foodstuffs, before paying the rations.” They cannot assume.” There is currently no evidence that the couple was receiving any support from municipal social services.

Police sources explained to ACN that the eviction process began with a court order, and that only the judicial entourage moved to the property initially.
