The Mayor of Garrucha has been denounced for corruption after the opposition PSOE party discovered that since 2008 all townhall vehicles have been serviced at his own garage.
Juan Francisco Fernández (PP) happens to co-own a garage in town with his brother (Automecanica Garrucha). Since 2008, it’s received some 17,000€ in payments from the townhall.
The mayor used to be the administrator of the company. After the PSOE tabled a question back in Feb, he quickly took his name off the books.
The PSOE have now filed a complaint against him in the local courts.
The only surprise is that it’s taken them so long to do this – I knew about this for the last couple of years, so I bet everyone else knew it even before I did!
