Villar stands out from the purportedly fraudulent hires of the RFEF - La Provincia

The former president of the Real spanish soccer federation (RFEF) Angel María Villar, said Thursday before the judge of the National Court Santiago Pedraz that had nothing to do with the allegedly fraudulent contracts for which he is being investigated since it was not his job to dedicate himself to those matters, as they have informed Europa Press in legal sources. He has deposited the responsibility in the General Secretariat of the Federation.

Villar was summoned to testify at 10:30 am in the National Court in the context of the case 'Soule' for which he was arrested and he is at liberty with precautionary measures, investigated for alleged crimes of unfair management and / or misappropriation and falsification in commercial documents. He has arrived half an hour before accompanied by his lawyers and has left at around 11:45.

Specifically, the interrogation concerned payments such as those received by Adolfo Gil de la Serna, that between 1999 and 2018 he would have received 283,246 euros and Julio Pérez Tomé, who from 2009 to 2016 would have pocketed at least 200,000 euros, justified in allegedly fictitious contracts and signed knowing that none of them provided any service.

Also under investigation is the grant received by the Cantabrian Football Federation for the remodeling of the Tanos Field, according to the same sources, for what the judge has cited as a witness in April to former Secretary of State for Sport Miguel Cardenal, who held the position when that public aid was granted.

According to legal sources consulted by Europa Press, Villar has argued that the signing of such contracts depended on the General Secretariat of the RFEF and the economic commission and were not his direct responsibility because as president, he was not in this matter nor knew the details.

Contracts to the son of the president of the RFEF in Melilla

He also answered about the payment by Dora de Pedro Muñoz of more than 80,000 euros in 2006 and 2009 for a retirement that would not have occurred since she was still charging -about 70,000 euros on an annual average between 2010 and 2016 -, according to the investigation. The former president of the RFEF has stressed that neither was this of his direct competence.

In addition, Villar is charged the payments to the son of the president of the Melillense Football Federation, Diego Martínez, who would have benefited with more than 100,000 euros between 2012 and 2016 also based on an apparent contracting of services agreed at the Mupresfe headquarters when he presided over it and on behalf of the RFEF.

Martinez, who was summoned half an hour before Villar, has affirmed that those two contracts for computer services were legal and detailed before the judge the conditions in which they were signed and received the compensation, according to the same sources.
