Luck for the looky looky men may be unlucky for you

The Torrevieja government team has finally found what they consider to be a solution to the problem of illegal street sellers in the city, the so called “looky looky men”, by approving the passage of an ordinance that they feel will eradicate the situation completely.

However, rather than attempting to deal with those who are actually committing the acts considered as illegal, the solution from the town hall is to fine the victims, in this case, those who purchase goods from them. Under the guise that the fines will protect innocent buyers from purchasing counterfeited goods, the law not only ignores any kind of action against those carrying out the illegal acts.

They do promise an extensive advertising campaign, which would have to be widespread if awareness is to be raised within the many tourists that the city wants to attract, as well as in every possible language of visitors who may fall foul of the law, as punishing the potentially innocent victims of crime seems an acceptable practice, though the question as to why they don´t act against those responsible first might be an appropriate question to ask should a case reach the inevitable objection through the courts.
