That was some gift

The next case against the former mayor of Bigastro, José Joaquín Moya involves the gift of a Volkswagen Toureg SUV valued at 60,000 Euros which Moya received from contractors working for the town council.

At the time of his arrest by the Guardia Civil, Moya admitted that accepting the gift was a mistake. The car had been subsequently sold and a more modest vehicle had been purchased.

The Anti-Corruption Prosecutor, Pablo Romero believes that the action of receiving this gift could constitute a crime of misappropriation and public bribery and wants the case to be tried by a jury in the provincial courts.
