Matas ‘rigged Son Espases contract,’ claims ex-councillor

«Jaume Matas» by Pep Parer

THE former health councillor for the Balearic Government, Aina Castillo, admitted to judge Jose Castro that the contract to build Son Espases Hospital was rigged.

She says that the former president of the regional government, Jaume Matas, made sure that the contract was given to company OHL.

This backs up statements she gave before the police and the anti-corruption prosecutor Pedro Horrach in April 2014, when she said that while she was councillor under Matas between 2003 and 2007 she received orders to make sure that the contract was awarded to the temporary union of companies led by OHL. Matas also allegedly said that if the work was not assigned to company Dragados, as it was eventually, there would be a “political problem”.
