“The authorities asked the person in charge of the event to show the documentation that allowed him to carry out said activity, as well as the operating permits for the premises; however, he refused to present said documents, which motivated the authorities to order him to suspend the event and tell the public to leave the facilities,” the MSP said in a statement.
