There is already a verdict on the 'FEVAL case'. The Provincial Court of Badajoz has sentenced José Luis La Viñuela, Juan Cerrato and José Villa to prison terms of eight years and three months for the crimes of embezzlement and falsifying documents. They are also disqualified from the civil service and public office for prevarication, but absolved from fraud and criminal organization.
The Extremaduran opposition has called on the PSOE to purge its upper ranks. The three ex-directors were in public office under the first government of Fernández Vara. The Socialists claim that they began the audits.
The sentence may be appealed against to the Supreme Court.
