ACCUSED: Rojales Council

The Democratic Party of Rojales (Pader) called in the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency with regards to alleged manipulation of dates for work done by the local council.

Pader stated in its denouncement that monies claimed for emergency drainage work done after storms in August and September 2019 was actually for work done in June of that year.

However, the anti-fraud team concluded that the council’s ‘denounced behaviours do not present reasonable indications of fraud or corruption’.

The council then accused Pader of a continuous campaign of political slurs that only hinders its ongoing work.

Rojales council also criticised the attitude of Pader who should only ‘supervise’ the council instead of trying to, ‘paralyse and destroy it in order to gain political currency’.

Council sources insist that the administrative cost of dealing with ‘continuous complaints’ is detrimental to ‘services and infrastructures meant for the city.’


The Pader party’s complaint originated during the different episodes of rain between August 20 (2019) and the DANA storms of September, the same year.

The storms caused damage in the area, where artificial lagoons have been built to take excess rainwater.

The necessary repair works were paid for by RojalesCouncil and claimed back from the emergency funds available from the Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development, Climate Emergency and Ecological Transition on November 7, 2019.

However, Pader claims the certificate of receipt of the works was signed off on June 3, months before the storms.
