BALEARIC President, Francesc Antich said yesterday that although he “wasn't happy” about the fact that the speaker of the Balearic Parliament, Maria Antonia Munar, had been questioned in court over the alleged Can Domenge corruption scandal, he refused to “jump to conclusions” about her role in the affair. He added that he was “certainly not” going to ask for her resignation at this stage.

Munar is also Honorary President of the Majorcan Unionist party, a major coalition partner of Antich's government, and was leader of the Council of Majorca between 1995 and 2007.

Speaking after the announcement of the allocation of some 20 million euros to create jobs for 2'000 long-term unemployed, Antich pointed out that Margarita Najera, ex regional Minister for Employment and now Managing Director of the Playa de Palma Regeneration Board, was legally denounced no less than eight times during her tenure as Mayor of Calvia some five years ago. “One by one, each of these moves to have her prosecuted were dismissed,” said Antich.
