Adelante Andalucía asks the Government to use all the means to find the sailor from Caleta de Vélez

Adelante Andalucía has registered a question through its senator, Pilar González, in which it asks the central government to use "all the human and technological means at its disposal" to locate the sailor from Caleta de Vélez, Mohamed El Maimouni, who He disappeared in the wreck of the ship with which he was fishing on July 8.

According to González, public administrations "cannot look the other way before the pain of a family that only wants to recover the body of their father to give him a dignified burial". The relatives of the disappeared, explained the Andalusian deputy for Malaga, Vanessa García, "have contacted us because they are desperate and need answers."

Similarly, the training has asked about the possibility of using ROV Comanche technology, an underwater search robot that uses Salvamento Marítimo, which the family knows exists in Cartagena and can reach the depth at which it is estimated to be the boat, Adelante Andalucía has detailed in a statement.

The ship 'Nuevo Rafael', based in the port of Caleta de Vélez, sank on July 8, 14 miles southwest of the island of Alboran with four crew members on board, three of whom could be rescued by the Maritime Rescue troops, without news about the fourth, the 54-year-old sailor Mohamed El Maimouni with six children.

The families, with the support of residents of Caleta de Vélez, have been collecting signatures and holding rallies since then demanding that the body of their father continue to be searched.
