Totana mayor held without bail after marathon preliminary hearing

The mayor of Totana, José Martínez Andreo, is being held in custody without bail after a marathon preliminary court hearing over the weekend. Two others arrested at the same time have been released on bail of €20,000 each. The case relates to allegations of corruption in the granting of licences for property developments in the Totana area, involving the expropriation of 2.2mio sq m of farmland for the construction of more than 5,000 residential properties.
