The last three former senior officials of the Junta de Andalucía whose term to enter prison ended this Monday, convicted in the case of the fraudulent ERE, the former Minister of Innovation Francisco Vallejo, the former Vice Minister of Innovation Jesús María Rodríguez and the General Director of IFA -IDEA Miguel Ángel Serrano, entered the Sevilla I prison shortly after 6:00 p.m., accompanied by a dozen relatives.
The three have arrived at the Sevillian prison two minutes before 6:00 p.m., accompanied by family and friends in a total of four vehicles, which have accompanied them to a side parking lot of the prison, where they have said goodbye to them.
With a serious countenance and without making any statements, and especially Vallejo, who has put on sunglasses despite the late afternoon, visibly moved, they walked alone the approximately 30 meters that separated them from the vehicles to enter the prison entrance office, after going up a small ramp, each with a handbag as their only luggage.
The entrance, at 6:01 p.m., coincided with the visiting hours of the prison and the return of the inmates who have been on leave during the Christmas holidays, so that the scene, together with the presence of the media, has Raised some excitement in the jail parking lot.
Now they will have to spend a few days in the admission module of the Seville prison and after being interviewed by the departments of psychology and social services, among others, they will be assigned the final department where they will serve their respective sentences.
Francisco Vallejo, former Minister of Innovation, is sentenced to seven years and one day and 18 years of disqualification for prevarication and embezzlement. Jesús María Rodríguez, who was Vice Minister of Innovation, is sentenced to six years in prison and 15 years of disqualification for prevarication and embezzlement, and Miguel Ángel Serrano, former general director of IDEA (the public company that granted the codinero pú) years and six months in prison and 17 months of disqualification for prevarication and embezzlement.
