Security measures announced after bus driver's murder, strike

BA province Security Minister Alejandro Granados (R) and UTA head Roberto Fernández (L) meet at the union''s headquarters in Buenos Aires City to discuss security measures for bus drivers.

Buenos Aires province Security Minister Alejandro Granados and representatives of the UTA transport union have agreed on anti-crime measures, following yesterday’s walkout fueled by the murder of a 22-year-old bus driver.

Granados and UTA leaders gathered today to discuss the sector’s worrying security situation that resulted in Friday's killing of a young driver who was working the night shift. Leonardo Paz was caught in a shooting when a group of thieves tried to rob commuters and a police officer opened fire. Following the news, the UTA union launched a strike that started yesterday at noon and lasted till midnight, affecting all greater Buenos Aires-based companies.

According to the official, security cameras will be installed in all 8,000 buses that go across the province of Buenos Aires and police controls will be intensified. Security agents on board the motor units will have as well to sit at the front to prevent gunfire events such as the one that took place on Friday in the provincial district of Villa Celina.
