San Pedro Boulevard comes alive at night

san pedro bridgeSAN Pedro’s iconic footbridge has walked its way into controversy.

The stunning overpass has been denounced by political party Costa del Sol Si Puede over claims of embezzlement and funding irregularities.

The Podemos breakaway group claims the former PP-run Marbella town hall put the same 309,000 payment through the books twice as a way of embezzling public funds.

The denuncia claims that demolition payments for a playground were put through twice among other irregularities.

The party is now demanding the new Marbella mayor discloses all payments in connection to the San Pedro project.

  1. I suppose it COULD be a political ploy, given the elections next month. I mean, who would be stupid enough to put the SAME payment through twice, and not expect to get caught. Oh, don’t answer that!
