The anti-corruption prosecutor has put the Sevilla lawyer, and President of the Sevilla Football Club, José María del Nido, at the centre of the corruption in Marbella town hall in the ‘Minutas’ case.

Francisco Jiménez Villarejo’s report increases his sentence request for Del Nido from 13 to 30 years in jail on charges of perversion of the course of justice, misuse of public funds, corporate crime, falsification of documents and professional disloyalty.

Del Nido was a legal advisor to the Marbella Town Hall between 1999 and 2003 when Jesús Gil was Mayor. The prosecutor says that over that time he invoiced municipal companies for more than six million €, and that he was paid that amount although he allegedly failed to carry out the work itemised in the bills.

The prosecutor claims that Del Nido was at the centre of the decisions of Marbella Town Hall, while the lawyer claims that he was only ‘an external assessor’.

The prosecutor says that after Jesús Gil spent six days in prison in the ‘camisetas’ case involving advertising on Atlético Madrid, he lost confidence in his previous legal advisor, José Luis Sierra, and that he contracted Del Nido as a replacement in a dinner in Puerto Banús in September 1999.
