A portion of the money they claim Marcos Rubio corresponds to a 2007 agreement that the PSOE did not sign and the remainder attributed to the festival of 2009, the year in which he could not receive a subsidy for not having justified the 2008.
The Councillor for Culture of the Municipality of Lorca, Rosa Medina, has reported that "the Consistory has paid all the money the law allows us to pay for the Lorca Rock festival celebration."
Medina explained that "some of the money they claim Marcos Rubio corresponds to an alleged agreement of 2007 that was never signed.
An agreement that in any case should have signed the previous socialist government because the festival was conducted in July and this government took office equipment in the second half of June.
Therefore, if as in previous years and beyond, included the promotion in the justification of the grant, it had to be done before entering the PP in the Municipal Government. "
"It would be illegal for the City paid to a person or association without a prior agreement or contract, and our obligation is to ensure that Lorca's money is spent according to law," added the mayor.
For the rest of the amount claimed Rubio, "refers to the festival in 2009, the year for which no one could give him the grant because it has not yet justified the last grant received and, by law, the City can not give more money anyone who has not shown that he has received money for the purpose for which it was issued.
Therefore, you have to make this man is to submit invoices to have used money from city coffers to run the festival presented the draft or return the grant with interest on arrears, because the taxpayer only You can spend as legally, "added the councilman.
