Penitentiary unions to join police protest rally

The Federation of National Penitentiary Administration Unions (FSANP) will join a police demonstration at the Palace of Parliament on Tuesday, thus showing solidarity with Interior Ministry workers who will be laid-off. In a press release from FSANP carried by Mediafax yesterday, the federation says police lay-offs are “direct help to criminality” and an invitation to public disorder. “The government is showing irresponsibility again, knowingly violating the need to assure public order and peace, and the obligation of preventing and combating criminality. The effect of these measures will undoubtedly be a society that will lack both economic security (…) and public safety,” the release reads. Members of the National Police Union plan on staging a protest at Parliament today, accompanied by their families, in order to convince MPs not to pass a draft law providing significant lay-offs from the Interior Ministry. The draft law was rejected by the Senate, but the Chamber of Deputies has the final word on the project.
