It has been the Court of Instruction number 41 of Madrid who has summoned the mayor of the capital and the delegate of the Environment and Mobility, Borja Carabante, to a face-to-face appearance on May 23 to decide on the precautionary measure to open all the parks of the city, raised by a lawyer in a demand against the Consistory.
In addition, the judge has ordered the opening of planned investigative measures in relation to this complaint of alleged prevarication before the closure of certain parks in the face of the coronavirus crisis brought by this lawyer, after being fined by the Madrid Municipal Police for walking through the Parque del Oeste in the period in which the municipal administration ordered its closure.
Martínez-Almeida has criticized in an interview on TVE collected by Europa Press that the complainant has not provided "or the resolution subject to the crime", something that he sees as "surprising". In addition, he recalled that the city of Barcelona or National Heritage have not opened their parks, a "decision endorsed by Fernando Simón himself, who said that they should be kept closed against crowds." Although, the alderman has made it clear that this will not distract him from his work as mayor.
