THE ex-managing director of Real Mallorca, has been sentenced to 2 years in prison and ordered to return 617.729 euros to the ailing football club.
Javier Marti Asensio, who was the owner of the club between August and November 2009, has been ordered to pay back the money or serve the two year prison sentence.
The ex-delegate councillor of the town hall bought 93.4% of the football clubs shares for 4.270.000 euros, which was due to be paid over 12 months with promissory cheques. Only one of the cheques was honoured but he continued to use the facilities of the club, exploiting his status in the town hall.
Asensio also ordered a transfer of 105.560 euros from the club bank account to his company Safin Gestores, in relation to commission owed from the sale. A few days later, he demanded 11.600 euros more for advisory costs. As well as these amounts, he used the club credit card to spend another 1.169 euros.
In front of the judge, he agreed to his sentence, declaring that he did not want to appeal and only answered: “agreed, guilty and responsible”. The judge Gemma Roble harshly reprimanded the defendant from Madrid, who missed the flight and the case nearly had to be suspended again.
