Alvaró Gijón remains a parliamentary deputy and a Palma town hall councillor. | Pere Bota
On Monday, the Partido Popular parliamentary deputy Alvaró Gijón registered a request with parliament for his position as a deputy to be certified. This is a formal procedure that gives certain protection to a deputy in the event of he or she being placed under investigation by a court. Gijón has now been summoned by Manuel Penalva, the judge in control of the Palma police corruption investigation, to appear on 9 September.
