SECURITY TO COST $193,455: The EFE reported Spain's Federal Police Union (UFP) has estimated the event's security cost to be €150,000 ($193,455.) UFP spokesperson Serafín Giraldo said that "counting 10 hours for each of the 945 mobilized police officers and adding the gas for the 164 police cars and the movement of reinforcement agents from Málaga, Galicia, Barcelona and Sevilla, the cost will rise to €150,000." Giraldo said the 945 police officers "will be separated from public security, which is not patrolling the streets but obviously has a cost. The private business that wants to pay for public security has to pay" (EFE, 5/16).
