Regime change for jailed Marbella mayor

FORMER Marbella mayor Julian Muñoz is to be moved to a lower security jail and given better conditions for humanitarian reasons, a Malaga judge has decided.

Muñoz, who is currently serving his sentence at Alhaurin de la Torre jail, has been reported by doctors to be in very bad health, one of the requirements for a change in regime to third grade.

The judge took into account the fact that he is suffering from a serious, incurable illness and is not dangerous or likely to commit another crime, along with the right to personal dignity, court sources reported.

The change will come into effect once prison authorities determine a suitable centre to move the former mayor to, and the judge stressed the change does not mean his sentence will be reduced or cancelled.
