"I am seriously concerned about the direction being taken by the Popular Party, with its mayor at the head, in the management of the City, because it shows that the concerns are in the courts, not the solution to the problems of citizens," said Socialist spokesman in the city of Fortuna, Alonso Ruiz, before the news appeared this weekend that relate to the Mayor of PP with Operation Brugal.

As indicated by Alonso Ruiz, Ramón Luis Valcárcel, President of the regional PP, has assumed the responsibility of the Mayor's legal future of his party in Fortuna: "If there was some sort of condemnation for Matias Carrillo, has insisted," it would also to a way of governing Popular Party, and that the head would Valcárcel.
