The ex-manager of the DeSevilla Foundation was sentenced to one year in prison and a fine of €742,00 for aid fraud in 2021.
The 11th Criminal Court of Seville has sentenced Miguel López Adán (IU), former general manager of the Foundation for Training, Innovation and Cooperation, known as the ‘DeSevilla Foundation’ and attached to the City Council of Seville, to one year in prison and a fine of 742,500 euros for the crime of subsidy fraud, having allocated money collected from the municipal coffers for international cooperation projects to “general expenses” of the foundation.
The Provincial Court of Seville has now exempted the former manager of the DeSevilla Foundation from compensating the City Council with those €742,000. The court states that the City Hall “has nothing to claim”, although it points out that the now defunct Foundation could “repeat” the actions against the former manager Miguel López Adán.
The sentence is reduced to a minimum of one year.
Montero Aramburu represented the ex-manager with lawyer Irene Amosa Vargas-Machuca, director in the firm´s Criminal practice.
