Ex Mayor of Marbella, Julián Muñoz, has told the La Opinión de Málaga newspaper that he is very happy and also surprised to be granted the third grade in prison. This means he will only have to sleep in jail and will also be allowed home at weekends. He tells the paper that he is now in better health, and has been taking advantage of the prison gymnasium at Alhaurín de la Torre.
There are nearly 100 other real estate irregularity cases against him, but a pact he has signed with the Prosecutors’ Office means that his time, three years in prison, will not be increased. As he was arrested on July 19, 2006, by next summer Muñoz should be a completely free man.
Now the gossip TV programmes will note whether he spends his days with Isabel Pantoja at her home in Marbella. On his previous prison permissions he has been staying at ‘Mi Gitana’.
