Hand in the till for over a million euros, claims the opposition.
The PSOE opposition councillors have filed a criminal complaint against the Mayor of Garrucha.
They say he’s misspent 1.381.590 euros that was supposed to be spent on upgrading the Galasa municipal water tubes, and probably spent it on himself.
They claim to have documentation proving that he and the municipal budget controller (who they accuse of not being qualified for the job, and being appointed by the Mayor without following proper procedures) pocketed the cash.
They also admit the possibility that he’s simply spent the money on other projects in the town, but that’s not such a good headline. The cash has been trickling out since 2004.
