MEMBERS of Mojacar council know are not allowed to film plenary meetings. However, this didn’t stop the husband of the councillor for Mojacar Positiva Se Mueve, Jessica Simpson for attempting to do so last Friday.
Local newspapers reported that Oscar Gagliardi was expelled from the Plenary Hall for the second time, but Mojacar Town Hall denies having expelled him.
In an audio file, the mayor, Rosa Maria Cano, can be heard saying “Oscar, you’re filming”, to which he responds “I know”.
The mayor then requests the presence of the police who ask Gagliardi to accompany them. As he is being escorted to the door, Cano tells him she doesn’t mind him being there, and says “stay, turn off the camera and stay”. He answers, “No, I have to go”.
He has said the Rosa Maria Cano had told Mojacar Positiva Se Mueve that she would not allow for plenary meetings to be filmed because they could later be used out of context. They proposed that someone from the town hall record them and put them on the official website, to which she also refused.
The party says it is the right of citizens to record the plenary meetings and have already reported the situation in court and to the Andalucian Ombudsman.
