The mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, has assured that the City Council will use "all the means" to recover "every last cent" that would have been swindled, if a sentence considers it proven that there has been such a crime.
The intermediary who defrauded the Madrid City Council from the United States used a false identity
He said this in statements to journalists at the inauguration of the expansion of the biogas plant in the Valdemingómez technology park and after being asked about the communication from the Malaysian authorities to Spain that the representative of the Leno company, which sold medical supplies to the Madrid City Council and agreed commissions with Medina and Luceño, will not cooperate voluntarily.
Almeida has repeatedly insisted during this statement that there is already "a judicial process that must be respected" on the mask case. asked about why he signed the letter of endorsement to Luceño, the mayor has avoided taking a position and has referred to the "public explanations" that he has already "given" on this issue "over the last two weeks". "I can understand that people want to ask me, but after 17 months the prosecutor has already spoken," he said, adding that his work must be "respectful."
“17 months of investigation and no irregularity of the City Council is pointed out”, Almeida has insisted again, who has ironized that “he does not know where he would be” if he were charged or if he had been called to testify. “All those issues that are being raised by the opposition or are being dealt with in the media are in the summary, which has been instructed by a prosecutor for 17 months. And that prosecutor says that there is no type of irregularity in the actions carried out in the Madrid City Council, therefore I have nothing more to say about it, ”he has settled.
As for the five days that the parties in the case have to propose new precautionary measures against Alberto Luceño and what the City Council is going to ask for, Almeida has stated that it is the "extraordinary" municipal legal services that are responsible for "making the decisions or request the corresponding actions. "Of course I am not the one to tell the legal services what they have or do not have to do."
