Land-GrabAN Andalucian mayor is being investigated after a Lebanese property magnate was accused of building illegally on protected land.

Mijas leader Juan Carlos Maldonado is accused by the local PP party of allowing the illegal construction at Finca El Pantanillo, near Río Ojén.

“The works are continuing because nobody does anything to stop them and the damage they are causing is terrible,” insisted PP councillor Carmen Márquez.

In January, police received reports from environmental inspectors of ‘suspicious’ changes to the surrounding countryside, with trees and vegetation destroyed.

But the PP allege Maldonado failed to act on the subsequent police report for three months.

He allegedly used the pools to deposit water from an urbanization in neighbouring Ojén.
