part of the ‘Astapa’ corruption case based in Estepona Town Hall, the National Police are now investigating the sale of a plot of land for a million € more than what it had been purchased for on the very same day.

The land belonged to the parents of the ex Chief of Staff in the Town Hall, José Flores.

Details of the sale of the land are revealed in the 32nd volume of the case summary which has been seen by the EFE news agency. Flores brother told the investigators he was unaware that the land had been sold the second time.

Reports indicate that in fact the first and second sales took place consecutively with all the people involved in the same notary at the same time.

The National Police Economic Crime Unit considers it necessary for the court to ask the authorities in the United Kingdom to locate the purchasers who are reported to be two British citizens, so that they can make a statement.
The prosecutor considers that tax fraud and money laundering resulted from the sales.

The Astapa case broke in June 2008 in Estepona Town Hall, and there are 70 people indicted in the case, including the ex Mayor, Antonio Barrientos, and his ex Chief of Staff, José Flores.
