The Court of Almería considers that the plot of politicians and companies for which the former councilor has been sentenced caused a loss of 58 million

The Audiencia de Almería has sentenced Juan Enciso, who was mayor of El Ejido (Almería, 87,500 inhabitants) for 20 years, to five years and three months in prison for the

Poniente case

, a plot of politicians and companies that depleted the municipal coffers in favor of private interests and caused damage of more than 58 million euros, according to the ruling that was released this Friday.

Enciso, who governed the municipality of Almería between 1991 and 2011, has been convicted of a continued crime of embezzlement of public funds in competition with a continued crime of falsifying a commercial document.

The court has convicted 32 of the 47 defendants.

Among them is the municipal comptroller, who has received a sentence of seven and a half years for embezzlement and bribery.
