They request three years of prison to two businessmen for a crime of fraud during the works of In Tempo
One of the defendants produced a false certificate for an outstanding debt that had already been settled
A court will judge next week two businessmen accused of falsifying a certificate to commit a scam of more than one million euros in the works of the Intempo building in Benidorm.
Thus, sources of the Superior Court of Justice of the Comunitat Valenciana (TSJCV) have informed today of the celebration of the trial for these facts, for which the prosecution provisionally requests for each of the accused three years in jail.
According to the public accusation, one of the defendants elaborated a false certificate for an outstanding debt of more than one million euros.
However, that debt did not exist in reality, because it had been liquidated a few months before, and the scam that supposedly intended to perpetrate did not come to be consummated.
The second defendant was the administrator of the company against which the alleged fraud was directed, that is, the merchant who was to pay the money.
Now, the Prosecutor’s Office accuses both employers of a crime of falsehood in a commercial document and of a crime of attempted fraud.
It should be remembered that the Intempo is the highest residential building in Europe, with 200 meters, and has 269 homes, distributed in 47 floors.
The promoter, Olga Urbana, left in her day without finishing the works after declaring in bankruptcy.
The Asset Management Company from Banking Restructuring (Sareb) ended up acquiring in 2012 the loan of 108 million that Caixa Galicia had granted to the promoter for the construction of the residential building.
