THE ex-Mayor of Andratx, Eugenio Hidalgo, and ex-municipal inspector Jaume Gibert left jail yesterday after a judge granted provisional liberty.
The two men, arrested over the Andratx planning scandal, had been in jail for 50 days. They did not speak to the media as they left jail.
The judge has ordered them to report to the court every two weeks and they cannot leave Spain. According to court sources, no bail was set.
Hidalgo and Gibert had been in jail since February 1, after the court upheld an appeal by the anti-corruption prosecutor Juan Carrau against the decision to release the two men on bail of 100'000 and 60'000 euros respectively.

Architect Miguel Arenas, who was arrested by Guardia Civil officers on Wednesday for alleged involvement in the same case, was released with charges yesterday afternoon, after a court appearance which lasted all morning.

He is accused of money laundering.
He will also have to report to the court every two weeks and will not be allowed to leave Spain without special permission. His passport has been withdrawn.
