Trees and bushes will also be removed.”

Hundreds of police officers have advanced and have surrounded the place, whether the eviction will now begin, the company left open and referred to the police. In turn, she only confirmed that “an eviction can be expected at any time from Wednesday”. A police spokesman announced further blocking measures of the place.
