The Ministry of Health and Ministry of Security announced yesterday that they had denied the permits once again for weaknesses in the security plan.

In the end, the festival will have 150 officers, which was approved by the Ministry of Security.

Now they are just waiting for the finalization of the permits so that they can continue with the festivities as planned.

Matarrita expects the full approval before 4 pm so the Ministry of Health can remove the seals that were placed yesterday, after a temporary closure was issued for the fiesta. (ADN)
