MARGARITA Nájera, the former Socialist Mayor of Calvia, has accused the Partido Popular (PP) of having used “Mafia-style methods” to gain power in the municipality by bringing charges against her in which she was “falsely accused.” She was speaking after the court shelved a complaint filed by the business association Fetur, which has ties with the PP.
The complaint was filed one month before the last elections. At that time, Fetur was presided by Luis Marin, now deputy Mayor on the council which is headed by Mayor Carlos Delgado of the PP. Fetur had accused Nájera of threatening the traders to make them withdraw their support to a complaint presented by Delgado, who at that time formed part of the opposition. According to Nájera, the court ruling says that the members of Fetur's board “have denied” the existance of the threats. She added that it puts paid to Marin's “lies” revealing them to be a “strategy to change the political colour of the council” and convert the municipality as “a private ground for his development plans.” What is most serious, Nájera said, is that Matas “is still using these methods” to cover up affairs in the municipality of Santa Margalida.
She said that the Socialist Party in Calvia will collect all the files on the cases brought against her, and within a year will consider going to court “to show people the shameful and pathetic methods” used by the PP.
