Councillor’s car destroyed by fire

GUARDIA CIVIL are investigating the circumstances in which a vehicle belonging to a councillor in La Carolina (Jaen) was set on fire.

The local Mayor, Francisco Gallarin, who, like the councillor whose vehicle was destroyed, is a member of the conservative Partido Popular, blames left-wing groups.

The fire gutted a personal vehicle belonging to the deputy mayor, Santiago Adan, and damaged the façade of his parents’ house.  It was started intentionally in the early hours of the morning.

Gallarin claims that it is just the latest in a series of violent acts against the PP carried out by left-wing groups since the night before the General Strike in November 2012.

Death threats against the mayor were painted on a local wall, and another threat appeared on the family home of a local councillor.

On December 27, he claims he was insulted and members of the left-wing group and the Andalucian Workers’ Syndicate attempted to take over the town hall.

Meanwhile the local left-wing party has expressed its support for Santiago Adan, as well as its disgust for the mayor attributing responsibility to “left-wing groups.”
