AN Andaulcian mayor has been accused of corruption and bribery in order to help out relatives.

Roquetas del Mar leader Gabriel Amat (left) is facing a backlash after being exposed in an investigation by newspaper El Pais.

In total, the PP party boss helped 103 businesses controlled by 53 of his relatives using his position as mayor.

The investigation also showed that during Amat’s term, his town hall favoured companies where he himself was a beneficiary.

These included developer Bojasa, which got an unprecedented number of building permits.

When contacted by El Pais for a comment, Amat replied ‘It’s all a lie’ before hanging up.
