    Torresat rebroadcaster in the news for its illegal transmitter masts

    El ayuntamiento de Orihuela denuncia la ubicación y actividad de antenas ilegales

    El edil de Urbanismo del Ayuntamiento de Orihuela, Antonio Zapata (PSOE), ha denunciado públicamente la ubicación y el desarrollo de la actividad de cinco antenas ilegales en Orihuela Costa.

    En concreto, Zapata ha acusado a la concejal de Nuevas Tecnologías del Ayuntamiento de Pilar de la Horadada, Josefa Meroño (Unión Pilareña), de permitir a la empresa Torre Satélite la instalación de dichas antenas y el desarrollo de su actividad.

    Según Zapata, "no consta que hayan sido solicitadas las respectivas licencias ambientales para la instalación de las antenas ni la autorización del propietario del suelo dónde se sitúa".

    Por ello y desde hoy, como ha anunciado el edil en rueda de prensa, se abrirán los respectivos expedientes sancionadores.

    "Lo grave es que sea un cargo público quien ejerza estas actividades ilegales", ha asegurado.

    Hace unas semanas fue el propio concejal quien ya denunció públicamente la existencia de una zanja de unos seis kilómetros, al parecer ilegal, en la misma zona donde se ubican dichas antenas.

    "No puedo entender cómo un cargo público de un Ayuntamiento se haya desplazado hasta el municipio vecino a cavar una zanja de 6 kilómetros, instalar 5 antenas y montar una televisión de la cual desconozco qué contenidos oferta", afirma Zapata.

    El edil oriolano ha pedido a la concejala de Nuevas Tecnologías de Pilar de la Horadada que "retire esas antenas y se acerque hasta la concejalía de Urbanismo para tratar de regularizarlas".

    De hecho, si esta acción no se lleva a cabo, Zapata ha manifestado su intención de valorar otras opciones impulsadas por el consistorio oriolano, como el precintado o cese de emisiones, e incluso la puesta en conocimiento del juzgado de dichas actividades.

    "No puedo consentir que se distribuyan contenidos a través de TV e internet y desconocer de qué se tratan", concluye.

    Ha sido la Concejalía de Urbanismo y, en concreto, la brigada de disciplinas urbanísticas las que han descubierto dichas antenas.

    Desde este departamento se prevé iniciar una inspección a fondo para saber el total de antenas instaladas en el municipio y que se escapan del control municipal.

    Por otro lado, este medio ha tratado de ponerse en contacto con la concejala, Josefa Meroño, quien, a través del gabinete de prensa del Ayuntamiento de Pilar de la Horadada, ha rechazado realizar declaraciones sobre este asunto por encontrarse éste en manos de la justicia.

    The municipality of Orihuela denounces the antenna location and illegal activity

    The mayor of Orihuela City Council Planning, Antonio Zapata (PSOE), has publicly denounced the location and development of the illegal activity of five antennas in Orihuela Costa.

    Specifically, Zapata has accused the councilman of New Technologies of the City of Pilar de la Horadada, Josefa Meroño (Pilareña Union) to permit the company tower Satellite installation of such antennas and the development of their business.

    According to Zapata, "not known to have been applied for the respective environmental permits for the installation of antennas or authorization of the landowner where is".
    Therefore, and today, as the mayor announced at a press conference, will open the respective disciplinary proceedings.

    "The trouble is that public office is the person exercising such illegal activities," he assured.

    A few weeks ago was the very councilor who has already publicly denounced the existence of a trench about six kilometers, apparently illegally, in the same area where such antennas are located.

    "I can not understand how a public official of a municipality has moved to the neighboring municipality to dig a trench 6 km, install 5 antennas and mounting a TV which offer content not know why," said Zapata.

    The mayor has asked Orihuela Councillor for New Technologies Pilar de la Horadada to "remove these antennas and approaches to the Planning council to try to regularize them."

    In fact, if this action is not carried out, Zapata has indicated its intention to consider other options driven by the session Orihuela, such as sealing or cessation of emissions, and even brought to the court in such activities.

    "I can not consent to distribute content across TV, internet and unaware of what they are," he concludes.

    It was the Planning Department and, specifically, the brigade of urban disciplines which have found such antennas.

    This department is expected to begin a thorough inspection to determine the total number of antennas installed in the municipality and leaking municipal control.

    On the other hand, this medium has tried to contact the councilor, Josefa Meroño, who, through the press office of the Municipality of Pilar de la Horadada, has refused to make statements on this matter found it in the hands of justice .

    Urbanismo culpa a Pepa Meroño de 5 antenas ilegales además de la zanja

    La Brigada de Actividades del departamento de Urbanismo de Orihuela ha detectado al menos cinco antenas que emiten señales de televisión o internet en la costa y que no cuentan con ningún permiso, licencia de actividad ni ambiental. No es que esos permisos se denegaran, es que nunca se llegaron a pedir, y se desconoce desde cuándo están operando estos repetidores sin que haya constancia en el Ayuntamiento. El concejal de Urbanismo, Antonio Zapata, hizo público ayer el hallazgo y cargó las tintas contra la concejala de Unión Pilareña y teniente de alcalde en Pilar de la Horadada (hasta hace pocos días edil de Nuevas Tecnologías), Pepa Meroño, por ser la propietaria de la empresa "Torresatélite" a la que atribuye la propiedad de las antenas. A la misma mercantil y a la misma Meroño se culpó hace un mes de haber abierto una zanja de seis kilómetros a lo largo de Orihuela Costa para enterrar un cable de televisión igualmente ilegal.
    Zapata se mostró indignado de que "alguien ha pensado que el término de Orihuela es virgen, poco menos que la selva, y que se puede instalar una actividad sin licencia y lucrarse sin que los beneficios repercutan en el municipio". Añadió que "no tengo interés en ir contra personas determinadas, pero estamos hablando otra vez de Pepa Meroño, lo grave es que quien ejercita esas actividades es un cargo público que conoce sus obligaciones". Zapata insistió en que "no puedo entender cómo la teniente de alcalde de un Ayuntamiento viene al municipio vecino a hacer una zanja y poner cinco antenas sin permiso, a montarse una televisión cuyos contenidos desconozco si son legales".
    Desde Urbanismo se han iniciado los correspondientes expedientes sancionadores y se valora acudir al juzgado a interponer una denuncia. Paralelamente, se está estudiando cómo forzar la desconexión de esas antenas (precintarlas o cortar el suministro de energía son algunas de las opciones), que están situadas sobre propiedades particulares en los edificios Vistamar II en La Regia, El Faro, Orihuela, un taller y concesionario de Dehesa Campoamor o el Centro Comercial Tiro Pichón en Villamartín, según el edil. Para instalarlas se necesita la autorización de los dueños del suelo, a quienes se dirigirá ahora el Ayuntamiento para esclarecer desde cuándo están funcionando (es posible, reconoció, "que la obra de instalación esté prescrita, pero la actividad sigue estando ahí").
    Meroño, según el concejal oriolano, no ha contactado con Urbanismo para intentar regularizar la situación de la zanja denunciada hace semanas, "ni siquiera para pedir disculpas".
    Urbanismo va a volver a impulsar la ordenanza de antenas que dejó el PP pendiente de las alegaciones. "Vamos a llevarla a pleno para regular este tipo de cuestiones, porque hemos encontrado cinco antenas pero habrá más en todo el término". De hecho, solo se han detectado por la observación de la Brigada de Actividades, creada hace unos meses por el edil.
    Por último, la concejala Meroño no se pronunció ayer sobre esta denuncia de Urbanismo.

    Meroño blamed for 5 illegal antennas in addition to the trench

    Orihuela Town Planning Department has identified at least five antennas that broadcast television signals or the Internet on the coast and do not have any permit, license or environmental activity.

    Not that these permits the rejection, is that you never got to ask, and it is unknown how long these repeaters are operating with no record at City Hall.

    The Town Planning, Antonio Zapata, the finding made public yesterday and charged inks against Pilareña Union councilor and deputy mayor in Pilar de la Horadada (a few days mayor of New Technologies), Pepa Meroño, being the owner Company "Torresatélite" that claim ownership of the antennas.

    At the same commodity at the same Meroño blamed for a month after opening a trench four miles along the Orihuela Costa to bury a cable television also illegal.

    Zapata was outraged that "someone thought that the term of Orihuela is a virgin, just below the forest, and you can install an unlicensed activity and profit benefits without impact on the municipality."

    He added, "I have no interest in going against certain people, but we are talking again Meroño Pepa, how bad is that those exercising these activities is a public official who knows his duties."

    Zapata insisted that "I can not understand how the deputy mayor of a municipality comes into the neighboring municipality to make a trench and put five antennas without permission, mounted a television whose contents do not know if they are legal."

    From Planning has begun for disciplinary and values ​​go to court to file a complaint.

    In parallel, we are studying how to force the disconnection of these antennas (precintarlas or cut the power supply are some of the options), which are located on private property in buildings Vistamar II in La Regia, El Faro, Orihuela, a workshop and Campoamor Dehesa dealer or mall Pigeon Shooting in Villamartin, according to the mayor.

    To install you need the permission of land owners, who now heads the City Council to clarify how long are running (it is possible, he acknowledged, "that the work of installation is required, but activity is still there").

    Meroño as Councilman Orihuela, Urbanism has not contacted to try to regularize the situation of the trench reported for weeks, "not even to apologize."

    Urban will return to drive the antenna ordinance that left the PP slope of the allegations.

    "We will take it to heart to regulate such matters, because we found five antennas but there will be more throughout the term."

    In fact, only been detected by observing the Brigade Activities, created earlier this year by the mayor.

    Finally, the councilor Meroño yesterday did not rule on the complaint of Urbanism

    LA UNIDAD DE ACTIVIDADES DETECTA CINCO ANTENAS ILEGALES EN ORIHUELA COSTA

    La responsable vuelve a ser la empresa de televisión de la teniente alcalde del ayuntamiento de Pilar de la Horadada, Pepa Meroño, a la que hace unos meses se le abrió un expediente sancionador por realizar obras sin licencia en las calles del litoral.

    El concejal de Urbanismo, Antonio Zapata, ha informado hoy que la Unidad de Actividades ha detectado cinco antenas ilegales en Orihuela Costa, propiedad de la empresa Torresatélite, la misma que abrió una zanja de seis kilómetros sin permiso en el litoral oriolano.

    Zapata ha recordado que, hace unas semanas, se denunció la apertura ilegal de una zanja de seis kilómetros de longitud en Orihuela Costa y ha relacionado este hecho con la existencia de esas cinco antenas. Se da la circunstancia que la propietaria de la empresa a la que pertenecen los dispositivos es Pepa Meroño concejal y teniente alcalde del municipio vecino de Pilar de la Horadada.

    El edil oriolano ha señalado que se requerirá que se retiren las antenas y, en caso de no hacerse, se tomarán otro tipo de medidas para restituir la legalidad.

    Según ha detallado, las antenas se encuentran sobre edificios o parcelas que pertenecen a otras personas distintas a los propietarios de la empresa que las ha instalado. De este modo, el concejal ha señalado que las antenas, además de carecer de las licencias de actividad y ambientales, tampoco se ha acreditado el permiso de los propietarios del suelo sobre el que se asientan por lo que dada la actitud que esta mostrando la empresa responsable de estas actuaciones no descarta clausurar las instalaciones o dar traslado de este asunto a la justicia.

    UNIT DETECTED FIVE ILLEGAL SATELLITE MAST in Orihuela Costa

    The head returns to the television company of the deputy mayor of the municipality of Pilar de la Horadada, Pepa Meroño, which a few months ago opened a proceeding against unlicensed works to be carried out on the streets of the coast.

    The Town Planning, Antonio Zapata, announced today that the Unit has identified five antennas activities illegal in Orihuela Costa, owned by Torresatélite, it opened a ditch six miles without permission on the Orihuela coast.

    Zapata recalled that a few weeks ago, denounced the illegal opening of a trench six miles long in Orihuela Costa and has linked this fact with the existence of these five antennas.

    It so happens that the owner of the company that owns the device is Pepa Meroño councilor and deputy mayor of the neighboring municipality of Pilar de la Horadada.

    The mayor of Orihuela has indicated that it will require the withdrawal of antennas and, if not done, will take other measures to restore legality.

    As has been detailed, the antennas are located on buildings or plots belonging to persons other than the owners of the company that installed.

    Thus, the council has stated that the antennas, in addition to lacking licenses and environmental activity, nor has accredited the permission of the owners of the land on which it sits so given the attitude that the company is showing responsible for these actions does not rule out closing the facility or to refer the matter to court.

    From this weeks coastrider newspaper (coastrider.net)

    Illegal aerials land Torresat in trouble

    Local TV provider Torresatélite is being taken to task over five broadcast antennas, which are believed to be illegal. The Councillor for Town Planning in Orihuela, Antonio Zapata, has announced that his department has identified five illegal aerials installed on the Orihuela Costa, owned by Torresatélite, which also dug a ditch six miles long without permission along the coast.

    The councillor said: “It appears that Orihuela is a virgin territory where you can install items for profit without this impacting on the town of Orihuela or having to ask for permission or compensate for your actions. Just a few weeks ago the company was denounced for the illegal opening of a trench six miles long in Orihuela Costa and now investigators have linked this action with the existence of these five antennas. Zapata also admitted that the owner of the company which in turn owns these illegal devices is a councillor in the neighbouring municipality of Pilar de la Horadada. Zapata noted that “the trouble is that those exercising such illegal activities should know better, because they hold a public office or maybe they think this makes their actions less illegal.”

    The Mayor of Orihuela has said that the city will require the immediate withdrawal of the antennas and, if not done, will take other measures to restore legality. This declaration will strike fear into the hearts of many Torresat customers, who will remember only too well the Telemicro fiasco a few years ago. The collapse of that satellite TV provider left thousands without British TV and out of pocket.

    The five aerials in question are located on buildings or plots that do not belonging to the owners of the company that installed them, making them illegal under the relevant law. According to Orihuela Town Hall these masts do not have the correct permissions or licences. They are environmental unacceptable and do not even have the agreement of the owners of the land on which they have been sited. Zapata said that he is liaising with the Department of Urban regularisation for such facilities, so that an ordinance can be adopted. Claims are also being resolved in co-ordination with the Head of Regional Planning Antonio Rodriguez Barbera.
