Good morning, Lee.
I may have called you yesterday evening to explain what happened yesterday morning; I don’t remember. In any event, our attorney met with the entire Dolega Municipal Council, including the mayor, all representantes etc. yesterday morning; based to some extent on a order issued about nine years ago, requiring Citricos to remove all gates blocking public access through Citricos property to other places, the Council directed the Corregidora of Rovira to accompany our attorney to our property and to witness the removal of the Citricos gate. A friend came with a power saw and cut one side of the gate down; he ran out of battery power before the could cut the other side of the gate down.
Very early this morning, a retro came from Citricos and dug a ditch about 5 feet wide, 5 feet deep and about 20 feet wide, extending across the entire entry to the gate; the gate has not been put back up. The ditch, obviously, blocks vehicular access as well as passage on horseback.
Our attorney is now on her way to the Governor and to the Court in David to get something done, ASAP. I think that this time, Citricos has really crossed over the line. I don’t know what “ASAP” means in Spanish.
I’m writing this rather than calling, because both of our phones have only a little calling time left and I want to save what there is for an emergency. Daniel, our worker, was going to get some more cards for us this morning, but could not get out. Its about a half an hour ride on horseback to the nearest place where cards can be purchased. Our attorney promised to bring us some mas movil cards when she comes later today.
Ain’t this exciting!!!???
