Former Marbella mayor Marisol Yagüe, currently in jail for her conviction in the ‘Malaya’ corruption case, now faces a five-year sentence for allegedly using town hall construction material during a remodel of her own home.

The public prosecutor says that in 2004 the then mayor carried out a comprehensive remodel of her home, without the required municipal construction licences, and for part of the work used over €23,000 worth of marble and granite taken from a municipal construction supplies storage facility.
