New revelations show that the powerful Catalonia ex-president, Jordi Pujol, had big plans in Malaga province. His term with the corrupt son, Jordi Pujol Ferrusola “Junior” was involved in several shady contracts for construction of the scandal golf project Los Merinos Norte in Ronda – which, however, never came.
Jordi Pujol Ferrusola demanded approximately 1.1 million Euros in fees in order to “facilitate and provide advice” for business contracts totaling 43 million Euros, it is nearly three percent of the total amount.
The work of excavation for the huge project began in September 2006, but the locals were deeply divided on the issue of golf courses and the related construction would be beneficial to the municipality or drive it to the brink of ecological disaster due to the high water, in a rural area characterized by drying.
Los Merinos would be built very close to the Natural Park of Sierra de las Nieves. The project consisted of two golf courses, 800 luxury villas Marbella on the huge plot of land, a five-star hotel and an international school.
But several environmental groups and local residents, including the aging Sir Alistair Boyd, launched a comprehensive protest against the new project and the same year, 2012, annulled the permit on the Andalucian Supreme Court on the grounds that there were insufficient guarantees of future water supply in the area.
Two years later, it has now emerged that the Pujol family, who are suspected of collecting illegal bribes and corruption in Catalonia, also had extensive interests in the failed prestigious building in Ronda in Andalusia.
