The judge imputes the mayor of Ourense for an alleged crime of embezzlement


The mayor of Ourense, Gonzalo Pérez Jácome, will have to appear on December 28 as an investigated before the investigating judge number 2 of Ourense as a result of the complaint for alleged misappropriation of public funds. The investigation started from an anonymous complaint from which the management of almost 100,000 euros of Democracia Ourensana was investigated, and specifically took as a reference two checks of 20,000 and 30,000 euros withdrawn in the name of Pérez Jácome, money on which the Mayor of the third city of Galicia will have to explain if they went to training expenses or not.

In addition, the Public Ministry analyzes payments from the municipal group supposedly destined to pay for the license of the television space of Auria TV, the television owned by the mayor. However, the events under investigation would have occurred between 2015 and 2018 when the current municipal councilor was still an opposition councilor in the municipal corporation.

The news that the Prosecutor’s Office had filed a complaint against the municipal councilor for these events was known at the end of October and at that time Jácome did not want to make statements to the media, but he did express his opinion on the judicial proceedings through his social networks claiming to have “zero concern” before a complaint that he considered “baseless” and that “like the previous ones” he foresaw that “it would come to nothing.”

Jokes about his indictment

Jácome has used his Twitter profile to joke with his accusation: “Are they summoning me to court on December 28? I hope my statement is not taken as an innocent,” he wrote on the social network.

The management of Democracia Ourensana funds by its leader was the trigger that prompted the departure of four of the seven councilors who formed the party at the beginning of the mandate and who are now as unaffiliated. In addition, the departure of the four councilors also gave way to the departure of the Popular Party, which has returned to the local government and when the complaint was known, it appealed to the presumption of innocence.
