Santa Pola Officials on Trial

The trial starts today in Alicante against nine people accused of offences such as the continued crimes of prevarication, fraud and embezzlement, including the former councillor in charge of the Local Police in Santa Pola, the head of the municipal police, officers and local business owners.

The alleged irregularities were during the acquisition of material and uniforms destined for the Local Police of Santa Pola.

The events occurred, according to the public accusation, between the years 2011 and 2015 when various quantities of items were requested and paid for without respecting the legally established contracting procedure, orders that furthermore, were never delivered.

San Miguel to get New Auditorium

San Miguel de Salinas will soon be home to a new auditorium, set to replace the existing Casa de Cultura, and will also include a municipal library feature.

The new half-a-million-euro auditorium will be located on Plaza Jaime I and has been part funded by the Alicante provincial council.

The Mayor of San Migual, Juan de Dios Fresneda, said, “We have taken an important step to promote the cultural and artistic growth of San Miguel. The new facilities will provide extra motivation for the residents to become more involved in the social life of the town. We are fond of the Casa de Culture, but it is time to replace it with a more functional space.”

New Funeral Parlour for Orihuela Costa

Orihuela Costa will soon have new purpose-built facilities to help with the loss of loved ones, as work has begun on the construction of a funeral parlour in the area.

The local specialist company, Pompas Fúnebres Samper SL, has been applying for permission to build the facility since 2018, and have finally obtained approval, so work has commenced.

The million-euro facility will open early in the new year on the corner of Calle Diamante and Calle Amatista, opposite Leroy Merlin´s supply depot, on the Orihuela Costa.

The building will carry out all functions necessary for those who have past away, with the exception of cremation.

Dustbin Fire in Torrevieja

Fire fighters in Torrevieja were called to a blaze that was affecting three municipal dustbins on Saturday, that also spread to the garden of a local house.

The incident occurred in the Los Frutales neighbourhood, near to the sea front, and was first attended by the Local Police who set up a security perimeter awaiting the arrival of the fire fighters.

Controlling Spy on Trial

The trial begins today in the Alicante Provincial Court against a man accused of entering his ex-partner’s house without permission and leaving a sound recorder, with which he recorded and listened to the woman’s private conversations.

The incident dates back to December 2020, when the defendant allegedly entered the victim’s home with keys that he had obtained without her permission and placed the recording device in a hidden location.

The Prosecutor’s Office considers him the author of a continuous crime of breaking and entering and another of discovery and revelation of secrets for which he appreciates the aggravating factor of kinship.

Fugitive Arrested in Benidorm

Officers from the National Police in Benidorm arrested a Vietnamese national wanted by Interpol for crimes against the freedom and safety of 13 workers illegally introduced into the United Kingdom.

The arrest warrant has been outstanding since 2018 and the officers managed to identify the fugitive through the international system, locating the 65-year-old man in a hotel in the town.

The man is accused of being part of an organised network and was in charge of falsifying the documentation necessary for the victims to enter British territory. Each ticket had a cost of between 15,000 and 18,000 euro.

Teacher Accused of Sexual Assault

A teacher from Gandia has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a minor student.

The teacher was arrested by officers of the National Police after the victim’s mother filed a complaint after discovering a conversation between the accused and her daughter on her mobile phone.

The National Police opened an investigation, since it is not ruled out that there could be more minors affected in this same school.

The agents searched the teacher’s home and, after confiscating several personal items such as his computer, he was arrested and remanded in custody by the duty court.

Popular Beaches in La Vila

As the summer season officially came to a close at the weekend, the town hall in Vila Joiosa announced that the accessibility functions on the beaches of the town have been more popular than ever this year.

In total, according to the town hall, some 80 people have used the accessible beach service daily, which means 7,200 users throughout the summer season. All kinds of people with functional diversity or disabilities, as well as the elderly, enjoy this service.

The Councillor for Beaches, Carlos Soler, emphasises that “the accessible beach of Vila Joiosa is a reference, even outside the province, since every day we have been visited by bathers from towns and care centres from many points of Alicante, Valencia and Albacete”.

Scouting in Finestrat

Finestrat town hall has signed a collaboration agreement with the recently created Finestrat Scout Group, Grupo Scout Finestrat.

The mayor of Finestrat, Juanfran Pérez Llorca, and the Youth Councillor, Sara Llorca, signed the collaboration document with the president of the group, Maria Cristina Alejos del Olmo.

Among the objectives of the council are to promote the carrying out of various types of free time activities aimed at the youth of the municipality to enhance the offer of alternatives in the field of free time and healthy lifestyle habits among young people.
