A COUNCIL worker sacked for his political views has had his dismissal ruled unlawful.

Judges in Granada ordered that officials from Lanjarón town council were wrong to dismiss the administration assistant in August 2007.

The court heard how the Partido Popular supporter was sacked after allegedly insulting the spa town’s current PSOE socialist mayor, Mariano Ruiz.

The council then replaced the employee, known only be the initials AMSF, with a family member of a socialist councillor.

“There was a clear discrimination through the political leanings of the employee,” a judge in the Social Court number 2 of Granada said.
