A Former Alcaucín mayor was arrested on Tuesday morning by a special Guardia Civil unit from Madrid, supported by officers from Málaga. José Manuel Martín Alba was detained at 8am, along with at least seven other people, in connection with a continuing investigation into town planning offences.
The others detained included two employees at the offices of the provincial government in Málaga, plus a lawyer and a former worker at Alcaucín town hall. Officers also went to the Provincial Revenue Board in Málaga, situated in the Andalucía Technology Park, and took away papers and computer data for analysis.
Reports say investigators have discovered documents which have allegedly been altered to permit construction work on land which was not classified as being available for building. The police operation centres on suspected bribery, falsification of public documents, fraud, influence peddling and perverting the course of justice. Searches were carried out at a number of offices and private homes and further arrests were not ruled out.
