Alberto González Amador denounces the Madrid City Council for the leak of data on illegal works in his apartment in Chamberí

Alberto González Amador has reported the Madrid City Council to the Spanish Data Protection Agency (AEPD), accusing him of leaking confidential information related to the illegal works in his apartment in Chamberí carried out in 2022. According to El Debate, citing sources close to the council, González Amador's lawyers have requested the identification of those responsible of this information leak.

The Ayuso against Almeida

The file of illegal works in González Amador's apartment, where he resides with the president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, has been the focus of controversy. It was learned that the apartment was renovated without the corresponding license, a fact discovered by Somos Madrid in May and confirmed by the City Council after an inspection. González Amador began the works in August 2022, covered by a responsible declaration that the City Council considered insufficient. At the end of that year, two municipal resolutions ordered the work to stop, although it continued.

Reactions and changes in the City Council

The resolutions that denied the works were signed by the general coordinator of Chamberí, who was dismissed after the re-election of José Luis Martínez-Almeida as mayor. Javier Ramírez, the councilor of Chamberí during the denial of the works, He was also transferred to another position. Internal sources of the PP indicated that Ramírez's departure of the lists was a retaliation for her opposition to the works on the regional president's apartment.

Legalization of works and possible sanctions

Despite González Amador's complaint, Mayor Almeida's team has maintained a strict information lock on the file. Vice Mayor Inmaculada Sanz assured that “not a single piece of information” would be leaked., defending the delivery of an amputated file to the opposition. The PSOE reported first to the Anti-Fraud Office and then to the Chamberí Board the incomplete delivery of the information, with documents photocopied and crossed out to hide key data.

While the courts resolve these issues, the process of legalizing the illegal works in González Amador's apartment advances. The City Council has started the process for González Amador to restore the property to its original state or legalize the work, which will probably involve a fine yet to be determined.
