The Supreme Court's decision to ratify the dismissal of the complaint against Pilar Barreiro Novo Carthago "is good news for Cartagena that guarantees the legality with the acting mayor and City Council. This decision forced to apologize to the complainants, between Castejon them the Deputy Mayor, who built his election campaign on accusations that have again proved to be false and trampling the presumption of innocence, "has said the spokesman of the Popular, Francisco Espejo municipal group.
The council recalled that months ago the judge and prosecutors of the Supreme "totally ruled out the existence of any crime in processing that made the town hall. The judge was blunt and said there was no evidence of crime or any crime vestige but the opposition continued its efforts to use this issue as an electoral weapon, despite the damage these false accusations made to officials and public managers who participated in the proceedings ".
The Supreme Court decision has been taken after the prosecution and the magistrate himself comprobasen that all actions of the City were made following the legality marking and technical modification plan was made by an absolute majority, including the votes of the PSOE, which voted in favor of amending four times, twice in plenary and twice in the Planning Commission.
"To say that the procedure was illegal was the same as accusing officials and councilors who made those choices, including his fellow socialists. Therefore the Socialist municipal group refused to sign the complaint and Castejon and could only be signed a councilor, "said Espejo.
Francisco Espejo believes the PSOE can not react to question the decision of the judges and prosecutors of the Supreme.
"Once again, they criticized the sentences that put them in place and that is not respecting the law. What you have to do is take judicial defeat and apologize to the officials and managers that caused your complaint."
Once decisions against opposition
The municipal spokesman pointed out that all decisions taken by the courts on allegations of opposition against the previous government have been resolved in favor of the government.
"Once judicial decisions, eleven decisions in favor of the PP government and against the councilors who were determined to make opposition in the courts".
