Cristo Rei Damage

The damage over the weekend of the Cristo Rei statue, with a lump of concrete falling from the sleeve, believed to weight up to 20 kilos, and not 5 as first thought, is the subject on the front page of the Diario today asking the question who will pay for the repairs.

The statue was given as a gift 80 years ago, and this latest damage could be repeated as a large crack can be seen across the thumb. People are now asking who will pay for the damage, a bit stupid really if you ask me, as it is one of the islands most popular tourist attractions, and needs repairing quick, and reopened for people to enjoy.
