The Municipal Police of Madrid evicted an evangelical church in the Tetuan district of Madrid, where more than 50 people were concentrated in a small space, on Wednesday afternoon, a local body spokeswoman reported to Europa Press.
It was the neighbors who alerted the number of people entering the same premises in a state of alarm in Spain. A police patrol came to the place, who discovered that, despite the fact that the royal decree contemplates the performance of religious services, the separation distances between parishioners and other safety and hygiene measures were not respected to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Therefore, the agents proceeded to evict the premises, close it and denounce both the owner of the premises and the worker who carried out the religious activity.
According to the royal decree of a state of alarm due to coronaviruses, attendance at places of worship and civil and religious ceremonies, including funerals, are conditioned on the adoption of organizational measures “consisting of avoiding crowds of people, depending on the dimensions and characteristics of the places, so as to guarantee attendees the possibility of respecting the distance between them of at least one meter. ”
