THE ‘cocaine chauffeur’ who admitted he spent €25,000 a month of public money on drugs and partying has been released without bail because ‘he cannot afford it’.
The controversial decision to cancel Francisco Trujillo’s €75,000 bail demand comes after his lawyer argued the fee was ‘unaffordable’.
The original fee had been set at €150,000 but investigators found Trujillo’s financial assets to be much lower than others involved in the scandal.
Trujillo played a part in the €1.3 billion theft of ERE public employment funds along with his former boss, Junta employment chief Francisco Javier Guerrero, who still remains in prison awaiting trial.
