Alfredo Gómez, councilor of the City Council of La Laguna, accused the president of Parliament of carrying out a work in 2021 without authorization in his attic
The second section of the
Provincial Court of Santa Cruz de Tenerife has dismissed the appeal filed against the decision of the Court of Instruction number 3 to file a complaint against the president of the Parliament of the Canary Islands, Gustavo Matos,
for some works in his house.
The complaint, filed by the councilor of the City Council of La Laguna Alfredo Gómez, was provisionally dismissed and filed last April when the investigating magistrate could not be found

The councilor appealed the file of the complaint, which has now been ratified by the Provincial Court in an order in which it is stated that "there are no
target cluess nor of any other nature regarding the reality of the facts denounced that reasonably support the mere suspicions of the plaintiff.”

will come to fruition by said entity.
