Fredericia’s former mayor Jacob Bjerregaard (S) – contrary to his own explanation – put pressure on the municipality, while he was mayor, to secure an attractive building plot.
It writes on the basis of a telephone note that is part of an access to documents.
The telephone memo describes a conversation between the sales manager for the building plots to be sold, Jens Ole Andersen, and the head of Technology and Environment in Fredericia, René Olesen.
“Jens Ole stated that the mayor and he had met at the development, and the mayor had informed Jens Ole that Lotte wanted the land, so he should just make it happen,” writes René Olesen about the conversation.
“I asked if the mayor knew that there were others who also looked at the plot, and Jens Ole confirmed that the mayor knew.”
The case is about Jacob Bjerregaard as mayor buying an attractive building plot on Argentinervej in the first row with a view of the Little Belt.
First, Ekstra Bladet described that the mayor had not submitted a written bid before he won the right to the land. And that he had won the bid in front of others who had been in contact with the municipality.
Jacob Bjerregaard has previously told Ekstra Bladet that he and his wife, Lotte Cederskjold, had not enjoyed special treatment when they secured the land.
‘I am brought up with the view that it was entirely after the book. We have looked at a plot and approached the sales manager directly, “he told Ekstra Bladet in late December.
“He then made a sales deal for us. I do not know what he has told others. “
Shortly before the case came to light, Jacob Bjerregaard resigned as mayor of Fredericia, when he had been offered a job at the communications and advertising agency Advice.
