TWO former Junta heads have appeared in a Sevilla court over the ERE scandal.
Manuel Chaves and Jose Antonio Grinan appeared as defendants in the trial over a €855 million slush fund intended for retired workers and struggling companies.
Under Chaves’s presidency between 2001 and 2008 more than €576 million was diverted into the fund.
Chaves said: “I reiterate once again that the governing councils which I presided over during my time as President of Andalucia never pushed, maintained or adopted an illegal decision.”
Follwoing the half-hour hearing, the ex-president ignored journalist’s questions outside the court.
