PALMA Provincial Court will hear a case against the former Head of the Education Department, Joana Maria Camps, for alleged embezzlement of public funds.
The Balearic Teachers’ Assembly appealed the decision of a court in Palma to close their case against her in December last year and the provincial court has accepted the appeal. The case points to alleged irregularities in her trips to Menorca paid with public funds. She was born on the island and has property there.
She allegedly visited Menorca 32 times in eight months in 2013, 17 occasions coincided with weekends and she stayed for several days. Meanwhile she only visited Ibiza twice, returning to Palma the same day.
