Corruption charges shelved

PROCEEDINGS against three Almogia officials are likely to be shelved.

Approximately 30 people –  including mayor Cristobal Torreblanca, the town hall secretary and the municipal architect – are accused of planning permission irregularities.

Wrongdoing had not been detected in the conduct of two town hall employees and a member of the Local Police, the Prosecution department announced. 

One of the officials involved was not a decision-maker, the department concluded, and was not guilty of corrupt behaviour.

The other employee was appointed acting secretary because he was the town hall’s most senior official.

His involvement was limited to signing two reports that granted planning permission to the usual secretary and his brother.

Accusations against the Local Police officer should also be dismissed, the Prosecution department recommended.

He had made reports on the age of buildings which had nothing to do with the licences now under investigation.
