A STRING of assets could be seized from the four children of former Marbella Mayor Jesus Gil.
The Court of Auditors has been asked by Marbella City Hall to seize six houses, 96 parking spaces and 43 business premises in an effort to claw back the €105 million embezzled during the disgraced mayor’s reign.
A court has already decided that the money should be paid back, saying that between 1994 and 1999 Gill, who died in 2004, and other members of the council were responsible for city losses worth that amount.
If approved, this would not be the first seizure commanded by the Court of Auditors. In December, former Deputy Mayor Pedro Roman was notified that he would have properties worth €108 million confiscated.
