BA City court ratifies Villa Lugano eviction
BA City’s Penal and Contravention Camera ratified yesterday the eviction of the Villa Lugano neighborhood lands that remain occupied by a group of families since February 25.
The procedure will be carried out by the Metropolitan Police between 9am and 19pm today.
Judge Gabriel Vega had previously ruled to evict the Villa Lugano settlement named as “Papa Francisco”, but the eviction was suspended because of the lack of cooperation between Metropolitan and Federal Police.
Over 500 families from the nearby Villa 20 shantytown took over the land in demand for housing solutions.
