Javier Tascón, Deputy Mayor in charge of Fines and Infringements, said that "this new action demonstrates our firm commitment to guaranteeing safe leisure in the municipality and to combat any form of anti-social tourism or excesses".

Tascón added that "we are also enforcing the rules of the game equally for all tourist establishments. It is not fair that those who are committed to quality and good service should be harmed by those who do not comply with the rules. We must defend our entrepreneurs and workers against those who damage the image of our municipality."
