Commemorative Plaques on Municipal Buildings Featuring Name of Disgraced Ex-Mayor Taken Down

A dozen commemorative plaques featuring the name of ex-San Fulgencio Mayor, Trinidad Martinez, and former independent councillor Mariano Marti have been removed from municipal buildings in the area.

The disgraced socialist-PSOE mayor was given a 17-month jail sentence for corruption and banned from public office for nine years back in 2015 over the building of eight apartment blocks on the La Marina urbanisation, which were built on land that had been designated for sports accommodation.

Current Partido Popular mayor, Carlos Ramírez, is himself facing a corruption hearing later this year, and said that he was following regional Valencian government policy on removing the names of corrupt politicians from plaques erected on public buildings.
