Cs denounces that "more than 200,000 euros of public money of the shows of the Fair of Lorca 2017 have ended up in the pockets of a private company of Cartagena hand-picked by the Government Team" (11/10/2017)

"If it has been repeated since 2012 when the Government Team changed the management that was done by the officials of celebrations and deliver it to individuals, the economic damage would exceed one million euros"

The Municipal Citizens Group is going to file a complaint with the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office for alleged crimes of misappropriation of public funds and unfair administration in the management of shows and concerts at the Fair of 2017 and earlier, for allegedly allocating public funds for the benefit of individuals.

At the Local Government Board held on July 28, 2017 unanimously agreed to hire and without any open recruitment procedure, with three companies from the same administrator managing and organizing 11 actions submitted by the Delegate Councilor for Culture, Festivities and Youth for the 2017 fair.

Antonio Meca explains that "the City Hall has put all the material media, scenarios, sound equipment, security, enclosure, etc., and also made an economic contribution of 129,725 euros plus VAT to the company plus 100% of the until the fair in 2011 these procedures were done from the hiring services of the City and currently do not go through the control and inspection of intervention services and municipal contracting and therefore are awarded without hearing other offers ".

Even the Councilman adds that "if it had been organized from the Department of Festivities, as was done until 2011, not only would not have cost the City Council 129,725 euros plus VAT but would have had an estimated surplus around 77,000 euros."

It is confirmed that it is the private enterprise itself that decides the price of the tickets and the shows that come to Lorca, the officials of the Council of Festejos are not consulted and much less responsible for any management or organization of those events, despite its great experience demonstrated for many years.

If repeated since 2012, when Sandra Martinez was a councilor of Culture, true architect of this system of operation until 2017, would greatly exceed the million euros of public money that has ended in a private company in Cartagena.

The economic study done by this municipal group has been made based on an estimated attendance of the public, since neither the Government Team itself knows how many tickets have been sold and therefore it has not been able to answer our question of the plenary session. month of September.

Taking as an example the concert of Melendi held in an enclosure with a capacity of approximately 7,000 people and taking into account that sold out, the company obtained a net profit of approximately 144,000 euros.

Only with this concert would have avoided the municipal contribution of more than 129,000 euros plus VAT.

"Citizens will present at the next plenary this October a motion to end these practices harmful to the municipal economy and re-entrust to municipal officials the organization of the Fair and Festivals of Lorca and other events taken out in the municipality. "
