A functioning, robust democracy requires a healthy educated, participatory followership, and an educated, morally grounded leadership.

Sweden / Spain

Severe felony judgments have been stated by the courts in Sweden for drug-trafficking from Spain to Sweden.

The cooperation between the Swedish and Spanish authorities led to many searches being carried out. The office of the husband of the mayor of Marbella was one of the properties being search, where the family of the mayor has got several companies registered.

Research has shown that the husband of the mayor and their two sons have become permanent residents in Sweden several years ago, despite the fact that they still continue having business activities in Spain. The companies they have set up in Sweden are mainly holding assets, e.g. properties in Spain. By being permanent residents in Sweden inheritance and gifts can be passed on without any taxation.

Guardia Civil has detained almost fifty people in an operation against drug trafficking in Malaga. Three criminal organizations dedicated to drug trafficking have been dismantled.

One of the detainees provided a parcel service using his uniform and a tagged vehicle to distribute the hidden drug in conventional packages, not raising suspicions and thus avoiding the perimeter closures established due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The issue of theft of electricity was brought up by representatives of property owners at the latest community meeting on 13 April 2019, but it was never mentioned in the Minutes (“Acta”). Photo evidence of illegal connection was presented too. The illegal connection to one of the apartments was in place from June 2018 until it was sold and refurbished in the spring of 2021.

It seems it was first in a letter on 25 December 2020 where the Secretary-Administrator mentioned theft of electricity to the property owners, by saying that there are no theft of electricity from neither any neighbours or from the community.
