MORE THAN 750 workers have taken part in a simulation to prepare for a major emergency.
The exercise, which took place the Maritime Station at the Port of Malaga, involved workers from the Junta de Andalucia and Malaga City Council.
People posed as victims in an effort to improve the responses of the emergency services to a disaster at a shopping centre. A representative emphasised the “importance” of the simulation, saying, “situations that we could happen are rehearsed with great realism and the different agents involved can intervene.”
Meanwhile, prosecutors are demanding eight years in prison for a man accused of working with Jihadists.
Malaga-based Elmedjeri is currently on trial for allegedly falsifying documents to help members of a terrorist cell travel to Mali, Syria and Lybia. He faces charges of collaborating with Jihadists alongside five others, who were arrested when their alleged terrorist cell was brought down by police in the Spanish enclave of Melilla.
The defendant, who is a resident of Malaga’s Las Delicias neighbourhood, is said to have kept precision instruments for falsifying documents at his home, including a stylus, ultraviolet lamp and sealants. Police claim the cell he was helping carried out “incessant work of facilitation” of jihadists between 2012 and March 2014.
Other defendants in the trial include the “promoter, director and coordinator” of the organisation.
