Jaume Garau, who faces corruption charges. | Archive
The anti-corruption prosecution service has lodged charges of abuse of power/process* and trafficking of influence in respect of contracts awarded by ministries run by Més to the party's former campaign manager, Jaume Garau. The prosecutor has cited Garau; the ex-minister for transparency and culture, Ruth Mateu, who is a member of Més in Minorca; and Pere Muñoz, the director of the Balearic Tourism Agency. Muñoz is the only one of four government officials who is still in office to face criminal proceedings. In addition to Mateu, two others from the transparency and culture ministry - both of whom left their posts when Mateu did - have been cited.
