Carlos Cervantes Zamora, IU councillor in Mojacar and ex mayor of Mojacar, has been found guilty of slander against the local association “Salvemos Mojacar”, one of the local pressure groups against El Algarrobico. He repeatedly called the association members “maniuplators without shame” and many other unpleasent names, including in a famous interview with “Actualidad Almanzora”, the local newspaper.
2000€ to Salvemos Mojacar, a fine of 1000€ and costs against him was the judgement. This is the third time this has reached court, the case being abandoned by the judge for technical reasons the first two times. He’s an outspoken man, who always reminds me of Brian Blessed for some reason. Salvemos Mojacar had asked for more, but the judge thought this was fine.
