The European Union (EU) has decided not to submit to the Council 1.3 million that the provincial agency was spent between 2000 and 2006 in violation, according to European experts, the basic principles governing public procurement. The EU, which had complained to the council that money, not wait for him to return the son of Baltar: I have already deduced from the statement of expenditure in Spain. Although Brussels argues that the process is already closed, the County did not report it. The Socialist Party has already announced he will file a complaint with the prosecutor.
