Rambla II file: The municipal secretary says she “does not live in Albox and did not see the works on the Rambla”.

In the picture, the municipal secretary laughs as Torrecillas, faced with the opposition’s request, says that “he is not going to ask for permission because they are not going to give it to him”.

This week we have witnessed a new episode in the judicial investigation being carried out by the Juzgado de Instrucción Nº 1 of Huércal-Overa, regarding the case known as Rambla II, which investigates the concreting of the watercourse as it passes through the urban area. The crimes investigated by the justice system are against land use planning, prevarication, false documentation and embezzlement of public funds.

The ex-secretary of the Town Hall, Eva Cano, testified as a witness, at the request of her current husband, the lawyer of councillor José Campoy, Tomás Martos.

The statement was clearly aimed at exonerating José Campoy, who was the right-hand man of the current mayor, Francisco Torrecillas, and who has been disgraced by being removed from the municipal government for some time.

On the one hand, the now ex-secretary stated that “… he did not issue a report, as he was not aware that these works were being carried out…”. Specifically, she set the date on which she became aware of the works on 15 March 2018, when, during a municipal plenary session, the PP spokesman Juan Pedro Pérez Quiles asked Torrecillas about the licence for the works in the rambla. In this regard, one of the lawyers asked him about the reason for his smile – of which there is a recording – in the question and answer. This question was not answered, as the judge considered that it did not clarify the facts under investigation, so it was not recorded in the minutes of the statement. In any case, with her statement, Eva Cano wanted to make it clear that the responsibility for the contracting of this (illegal) work lay with the current mayor, Torrecillas, and not with the client of her current husband, José Campoy. In the same way, the former secretary acknowledged that she did not make any legal report or warning after the plenary session regarding the execution of the works and the contract.
