I did not take backhanders, says Alhaurin mayor

THE mayor of Alhaurin el Grande has taken to the stand to deny receiving money from developers in exchange for planning permission.

As the trial got underway in the ‘Troya’ urban corruption case, Juan Martín Seron declared that he ‘never received money from promoters’.

“The town hall has never asked anyone for money in exchange for licenses,” he said during the opening day of the trial at Malaga court.

Seron faces four and half years in prison accused of taking bribes of up to 238,000 euros in exchange for favourable building licences. His deputy Gregorio Guerra is also on trial.

The trial continues.
