The well in which Julen is looking for, in the Malaga town of Totalán, lacked work permits, as the Junta de Andalucía itself would have recognized. As reported by the newspaper El País in its digital edition, the hole would not have the corresponding technical report of the Ministry of Environment of the Board, essential for the City of Totalán had granted the license of the work.
The well responsible for the drilling of the well where Julen fell has assured that a little over a month ago he covered the hole with a stone and then added sand to it.
This is what he has declared before the Civil Guard on two occasions. But professionals in the area say that the usual thing is to fill the entire channel. According to the pocero, someone had to remove the stone. Someone had drawn a groove up to five meters in diameter and that the ground had been lowered by half a meter: just the depth where the stone that was the stopper was.
The pocero adds that this could only be possible with an excavator.
