Varapalo for the son of Naty Abascal: the prosecutor requests 9 years in prison for Luis Medina for the “Masks Case”

The Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office has asked Judge Adolfo Carretero to open an oral trial against the businessmen Louis Medina y Alberto Luceno for the case of the masks in which an alleged fraud against the Madrid City Council is being investigated for the sale of medical supplies in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

This is stated in a letter, to which he had access Europa Pressin which the prosecutor requests a sentence of 9 years in prison for the youngest son of Naty Abascal and raises the petition to 15 years in prison in the case of Alberto Luceño.

The brief is presented in the intermediate phase of the proceedings with a view to the next holding of the oral trial. Now, the parties involved in the procedure must submit their respective provisional conclusions to the magistrate to determine the opening of oral proceedings.

In the case of Luceño, he claims a fine amounting to 5 million. In addition, it is requested that both compensate the Municipal Company of Funeral Services and Cemeteries of Madrid with almost 8 million euros.

Luis Medina is charged as co-perpetrator with a continued crime of aggravated fraud and another continued crime of falsifying a commercial document committed by an individual. Luceño is accused of the aforementioned crimes as author, along with another continued crime of falsifying an official document committed by an individual and another aggravated against the Public Treasury.

Similarly, the prosecutor requests that Luceño compensate the Tax Agency, in the event that it is considered that the commissions obtained in the reported operations are subject to taxation, in the amount of 1,351,386.29 euros.

Forfeiture of assets

The prosecutor considers that it is also appropriate to order the confiscation of the assets currently seized, as well as any others in the hands of the defendants up to the amount of 4,623,350.05 euros in the case of Alberto Luceño, and the amount of 912,700 euros, in the case of Luis Medina.

In the indictment, Adolfo Carretero maintained that the sales in which those investigated were involved constitute a case of “legal business criminalized by having deceived the Madrid City Council, fraudulently hiding excessive commissions for any type of business, without having any power of the selling company and false commercial documents”.

Carretero affirmed that Medina and Luceño “got rich” with it and “damaged” the Municipal Patrimony in essential goods, such as sanitary materials at the time of the sale “and in amounts greater than 50,000 euros.” The magistrate also points out that Alberto Luceño “deceived Luis Medina himself in the distribution of commissions” and that he “set unilaterally.”
