Former Viñuela mayor, Juan Millan enters Alhaurin de la Torre prison

THE former mayor of La Viñuela, Juan Millan, has voluntarily entered Alhaurin de la Torre prison to serve sentences for urban planning corruption.

Several months ago, his defence lawyers reached an agreement with Malaga Public Prosecutor and the ex-mayor pleaded guilty to 12 charges of crimes against territorial planning. The sentence was nine months in prison and a ten-year ban from holding public office for each of the charges, but the law establishes that with related crimes, the maximum time served will be the triple of the longest sentence imposed.

Therefore, Juan Millan is facing 27 months in prison and a 30-year ban from public office. The prison will now have to legalize his situation and gather information on his sentences.

One if them, imposed by a criminal court in Malaga, is for granting five building permits knowing that they were illegal, and failing to resolve requests for licences on three occasions.
