THE Andalucian Supreme Court of Justice has confirmed the sentence against former mayor Julio Alvarez for spending €6,098 on calls to a woman from his official mobile phone.

The former mayor of Puebla del Rio, in Sevilla, spent this amount in just over a year.

However, the court has reduced the prison sentence handed down by Sevilla Provincial Court from three years to one and a half due to delays in the course of justice. He has been banned from holding office for up to three years.

The Supreme Court has also reduced the sentence of former councillor Juan Carlos Benitez who falsified the bills requested by the opposition to prevent the mayor’s exorbitant phone bills from being discovered.
