      ‘The Partido Popular Mayor of Totana, José Martínez Andreo, has been ‘arrested in the court investigation underway into alleged corruption, Operation Totem, which saw another six arrests earlier this week. According to information from the EFE news agency, the secretary at the Town Hall is also now in custody.

      The Civil Guard arrested Martínez at his home and escorted him to the Town Hall, where, according to reports from the scene, officers are at the town planning department. It’s understood that the former Partido Popular Mayor, Juan Morales, who is a member of the regional parliament in Murcia, may also be implicated in the investigation: his ex wife, who owns a real estate agency in Totana, and his current girlfriend are already considered as suspects in the case.

      The investigation relates to the reclassification of more than two million hectares of rustic land in the Raiguero area to build 5,000 homes, a golf course and a hotel. Manuel N.A., the director of the Galician company, Nuaria, was one of those taken into custody earlier in the week, together with the director of Suelo de Inmonuar, a company which is part of the Nuaria Group. Locally, the owner of an agricultural company was arrested, together with another two suspects in Murcia City, and a sixth in Madrid.

      EFE said eleven property searches have taken place to date in Madrid, Vigo, Murcia, Pontevedra, Las Rozas in Madrid and in Totana itself. The alleged crimes are bribery and money laundering.’ END

      Martínez has been refused Bail.
