Spanish mayor calls it quits

A CHATTY mayor faces four years in jail for spending over 6,000 euros of public money on phone calls to his girlfriend.

The socialist boss of Puebla del Rio in Sevilla, Julio Alvarez, has failed to convince Andalucia’s senior judges of his innocence.

He now faces trial for the misuse of public funds after spending 6,107 euros on private calls on his work mobile.

The judges have dismissed all of Alvarez’s defences as groundless.

  1. Good. How about a map of andalucia with pins on each village/town/city with a corruption story with rankings of numbers of members implicated from each party? You could call it Politicians in a pickle or The shame of Spain.
