“WE are investigating cases of illegal building in some towns on Ibiza, in Ciutadella (on Minorca specifically) and some towns on the Majorcan coast”, the Balearic Public Prosecutor for crimes relating to town planning and the environment Adrian Salazar, pictured, has confirmed. He was taking part in the Conference “Five days of Town Planning: the draft State Land Law”, organised by the Balearic Architectural College.
Salazar said that he did not want to go into detail about the cases being investigated but simply said that, in Andratx for example, “serious building infractions” had been found.
He said that this situation “is not general” and ruled out there being the sort of corruption which happened in Marbella in which, in his opinion, the actions of the ex Mayor Jesus Gil and the “invasion of criminal gangs” played a large part. Salazar said he considered that, at a general level, the various administrations had not complied with Town Planning laws.
However, he did confirm that the situation in the Balearics “is better” than in regions in the east of Spain because, in his opinion, speculative development had been slower to arrive in these regions. The Public Prosecutor made these statements before participating in the Conference's debate about “Repercussions in the Balearics on land and homes”.
