Mazarrón Council has had judgement passed against it in the Supreme Court of Justice forcing it to reimburse to citizens EUR4mn in illegally-raised municipal taxes relating to rubbish collection, plus a further EUR400,000 in interest. The excess taxes have been raised since 1st January 2006, having been voted by the Council in 2005.
