They denounce new acts of vandalism against the brotherhood of Ecce-Homo and the Virgin of Love of Vélez-Málaga

Just three months later, the vandals have been primed again with the ceramic images of the brotherhood of Ecce-Homo and the Virgin of Love of Vélez-Málaga, reproduced in ceramic panels located in a green area next to the church of San José , where are the sacred headlines of the popular neighborhood of Los Olivos in the capital of the Axarquía. As the older brother, Antonio Burgos, denounced SUR last night, they found that after the damage last August, they had returned to breakage in several ceramic paintings of Christ.

«Once again, we have to communicate that the acts of vandalism against the monoliths of our Sacred Holders are repeated. We again ask the competent authorities to take action on the matter before these facts, and put in place the appropriate measures to avoid it. Like, again, we call for sanity and respect for the heritage of all, ?said the older brother, who said they were waiting to replace the ceramic panels, installed several years ago, after communicating to the City Council last August.

"Tolerance and respect are fundamental pillars of our society," he added. The older brother explained that they are evaluating the possibility of replacing the ceramics by placing a methacrylate crystal to protect them. "We are looking for budgets and funds to fix these unfortunate vandalism damages," Burgos added.
