  • The opposition PSOE is calling for the incumbent PP to "take appropriate measures"

The opposition PSOE party at Marbella town hall has called for the company which organised the Starlite Festival in the town during the summer to pay the money it owes.

As part of the deal to allow the festival to take place in the Nagüeles quarry, organisers Bendeus SL were required to pay a 125,000-euro fee before the start of the event which ran from 1 June to 13 September. This has not yet been paid, said council spokesman Félix Romero on Monday.

Now the PSOE is calling for the incumbent PP to "take appropriate measures". Socialist councillor Javier Porcuna said: "We don't understand why there's been a delay. We implore the local government to act and claim these funds which is a significant sum for the public coffers."
