THE mayor of Benamocarra used public funds to pay for personal lawsuits, a court has heard.  

A judge ruled that claims brought about against Abdeslam Lucena are ‘justified’.

Lucena had previously denied the allegations and had even filed a libel complaint against PSOE mayoral candidate Manuel Cazorla, after he posted the damning accusations on Facebook.

The judge confirmed Lucena ‘used public resources in judicial proceedings’ and that he ‘lacked legal standing’ in his libel pursuit against Cazorla.

Ironically, the public funds were initially used to settle a previous libel dispute between the two politicians.
