First prison sentence ever in the Canaries for “planning irregularities” given in Santa Cruz

The first verdict in the Canaries that will see politicians and local government employees go to prison for planning corruption has been given in Santa Cruz over the so-called Caso Mamotreto, the monstrous and controversial building that was constructed in 2008 – completely illegally and corruptly, it has now been judged – and which came to be called a mamotreto, a “white elephant”. Of the seven defendants, six have been sentenced to prison (between two and three years), demolition of the illegal buliding at their own personal expense, and a ban on holding office.
