The Seville Court has sentenced the former director of the defunct Faffe foundation Fernando Villén to six years in prison for having paid 32,556 euros in brothels with his official cards during 10 nights between 2004 and 2010. The former director of the Andalusian Junta during the socialist period had “an uncontrolled hobby” for hostess venues, according to the sentence released this Thursday. Villén has been convicted of a continuing crime of embezzlement in a media competition with a continuing crime of falsifying an official document as an inducement.
Along with the former high-ranking official of the Board, the former head of the organization’s economic-financial department, Ana Valls, has been convicted for doctoring the accounting and pretending that the money had been returned to the public coffers. The magistrates have sentenced Valls to five years and three months in prison, in addition to a fine of 5,840 euros. Villén must compensate the Board with 27,279 euros, pay a fine of 7,300 euros and will be disqualified from holding public office for six years, according to the sentence, whose speaker was Judge Mercedes Alaya.
Both convicted former Board officials can appeal the Court’s ruling before the Andalusian Superior Court (TSJA).
