ACCUSED: Ex-mayor facing lengthy sentence

Sanchez, who was arrested as part of the Majestic money-laundering investigation, is accused of perverting the course of justice, fraud, embezzlement and accepting bribes. Robert Gaspar, 55, and Robert Mani, 54 fled Spain after their scheme to pay Casares Town Hall millions to bypass housing planning laws was uncovered. The laundered money was allegedly supplied by the men through two companies, Majestic Land and Majestic Construction. Sanchez was arrested in May 2012.
