ORIHUELA’S Mayor has warned that the Moors and Christians will have to repay their grant.
The Association of Festivals Santa Justa and Rufina may have to return more than €90,000 granted to them last year if it fails to justify spending this amount to City Hall. This is something the Mayor Emilio Bascuñana (PP) sees as “very difficult” adding that “we are working to find the best possible solution, if there is one.”
He explained the problem is that “there are deficiencies in justifying the grant. We come from a somewhat complex issue in this City, as is the issue of subsidies.”
