Benidorm will pay more than 2.5 million euros for a final sentence not appealed by the previous councillor for Urbanism

However, before that, the City Supreme Court had notified it last May 8, date on which the socialist party still ruled. Caselles has asked "explanations" to the previous councillor for Urbanism, the socialist Rubén Martínez, "for not appealing, given the amount that is claimed by the Court".
Caselles has criticized Martínez for not having informed the opposition groups about that judgment and has described the case of "political irresponsibility", as more than 2.5 million were not covered in the 2015 municipal budget , despite knowing that the procedure was open and could be issued against the City Council.
