The City Council of El Rosario has won the administrative dispute opened by the ex-concessionaires of the Mercadillo Agrícola cafeteria, located in La Esperanza, against the imposition of two sanctions by the Rosario Consistory for breaches committed during the operation of the premises. “It should be remembered that in the framework of this litigation, at the beginning of last year, very serious and totally false accusations were made about the mayor and the first deputy mayor and in which the reasons for imposing the sanctions were misrepresented with the complicity of several members of the municipal opposition groups, ”said the Consistory yesterday in a note.
The sentence, which is signed by the head of the Contentious Administrative Court number 1 of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, dismisses the appeal, proves the sanctioned facts and imposes the procedural costs on the appellants. The court document, the resolution of which is final and to which no appeal can be lodged, “certifies that the former concessionaires of the Mercadillo cafeteria failed to comply with the operating conditions signed in the concession document and contained in the administrative and prescription clauses contract techniques. The press release from the City Council adds: «Therefore, the breaches, which are classified as very serious offenses, carried, in accordance with law, a fine of 1,200 euros for each of them, as well as the reduction of a quarter of the period of the concession, ‘hence the principle of proportionality has not been violated as the sanction imposed is appropriate to the seriousness of the conduct and conforms to the governing specifications of the concession contract’, establishes the sentence».
The mayor, Escolástico Gil, expresses his “absolute respect for the litigation opened by the former concessionaires to try to defend their interests, but what cannot be tolerated is that, using this lawsuit as a pretext, members of the opposition groups participate in the theory of the confusion and dedicate themselves to supporting acts that only served to propagate baseless hoaxes”.
