Anti-Corruption Prosecutor Francisco Jiménez Villarejo has made its final report of the trial of the case 'Minutes', on alleged irregularities in the commissions of the City of Marbella (Málaga) the lawyer José María del Nido for the inspection process of the Court of Auditors and noted that counsel was "embedded in the core of government decision" in the town and settled in the Financial Club, where the former mayor Jesús Gil managed.
Thus, he explained that he had legal advice and that Del Nido was "front", but added that it is undisputed that it was "not a mere counsel more, not a lawyer with an office open to the public in Seville attending Marbella City Council issues, no connection. ""It was the chief, the chief legal counsel, was the legal adviser of the City Council and exercised from a private home," he said.
He noted that throughout the trial has been that there was "confusion between public and private, which is one of the factors for the emergence and development of corruption.""This process is neither more nor less than a trial on a corruption case pure and simple," the prosecutor has argued in his speech, which made detailed reference to statements made by defendants and witnesses throughout this trial , which began in April 2010.
The prosecutor has indicated that two aspects have led to what happened, first that there was "no contractual framework, which, to be allowed a lawyer to issue an unlimited and uncontrolled minutes with a general concept, without warrant and without prior estimate" and, secondly, the bill could be no prior financial control, indicating that while the defenses have insisted on the controller, "the money was from society."
So, Jimenez Villarejo explained the origin of the procedure, following the audit report of the Court of Auditors and the charge of anti-corruption prosecutor, and has described the context in which events occur, with a mayor, Jesus Gil, who governs the City and its subsidiaries "from an annex to his mansion", the Financial Club, stating that in documents they receive from the law firm of Del Nido direction "as sub-delegation in Marbella."
