Two members of the PSOE list in Mojácar arrested for allegedly buying votes

Two members of the PSOE list in Mojácar arrested for allegedly buying votes
The UCO has arrested a total of seven people in an operation against electoral fraud.

The PSOE in Almeria is in turmoil over possible electoral fraud, after it became known that yesterday morning at seven o’clock in the morning the Central Operative Unit of the Civil Guard (UCO) arrested seven people and is investigating three more for allegedly buying votes for next Sunday’s elections.

Of the seven people arrested, two are running for seats and could be elected if they are elected on 28 March. They are the No. 2 Francisco Bartolomé Flores and the No. 5 of the local PSOE, Cristóbal Vizcaíno, businessmen linked to a tobacconist and hotel business, respectively, among other businesses, according to what has been revealed.

Mojácar, the summer resort of President Pedro Sánchez and where Minister Bolaños was last Thursday, today is on the front pages of the national press. The official Facebook page of the Mojácar party has deleted all the photos not only of Thursday’s political event, but also of everything that until now could be consulted.

A party press release has reached the editorial office of La Comarca Noticias, where the head of the list, Manolo Zamora, states “I want to convey to my neighbours in Mojácar my dismay at some alleged events of which I am completely unaware, and of which at no time have I had any knowledge of any irregularity on the part of my team in this electoral process”.

This is all the reference made in the letter to this alleged electoral fraud, where most of the content is dedicated to attacking the Popular party, without offering more details of what happened with the two businessmen who at this point cannot be removed from the lists, nor of the ten searches carried out by the UCO.

It seems that the plot would have offered money to dozens of people -many of them of Latin origin-, to ensure that they put the socialist ballot paper in the ballot box.

The proceedings are being conducted by the Juzgado de Instrucción No. 4 of Vera and the case is under investigation.
