FORMER Ronda councillor José María Jiménez, who resigned in August amidst allegations that his daughter’s wedding date had been falsified so she could access holiday benefits at a new job she was starting, has been called to testify at an investigative hearing.

His daughter is also called to testify at the hearing, scheduled for November 8 at a Ronda court.

Sr Jiménez resigned after the ABC newspaper reported that his daughter’s wedding, a civil ceremony officiated by Ronda mayor Teresa Valdenebro, was celebrated on June 17, but the marriage certificate showed a date of June 21. Neither Sr Jiménez nor his daughter have been charged with any crime; the hearing is part of the ongoing investigation of the case.
