Miras declines to talk about the sentence of his predecessor
In the town of Alcantarilla, the president of the Region of Murcia, Fernando López Miras, has declined on Monday to make any assessment of the sentence of the Provincial Court of Murcia to his predecessor in office.
The sentence was made public this morning while López Miras participated in a press conference on education and, when asked by journalists, Miras insisted that he did not know “in depth” the sentence “beyond the headline”, so that he has indicated that he cannot make a “serious assessment” in this regard.
He has expressed his “respect for justice” and has not answered the possibility that this case affects the electoral campaign.
Pedro Antonio Sánchez was forced to resign as president of the autonomous community in April 2017, at which time he had three cases open for political corruption.
It was he who directly appointed López Miras to succeed him in office and this was the only one of the three legal cases that was still pending, after his involvement in the ‘Pasarelas’ case and in the ‘Púnica’ operation, all of them linked to his time as mayor.
