The scandal of housing without a license of the judge investigating Begoña Gómez in Ávila

Judge Juan Carlos Peinado, known for investigating Begoña Gómez, wife of President Pedro Sánchez, faces a scandal for the illegal construction of his villa in La Adrada, Ávila. The former mayor of the town, Hilario Gabriel Ruda, of the PSOE, paralyzed the works due to the absence of adequate permits. This decision generated a series of events that revealed irregularities in the construction of the home.

The suspension of works: an inevitable decision

In a conversation with this medium, Hilario Gabriel Ruda explained in detail the reasons behind the stoppage of work on Judge Peinado's chalet. According to the former mayor, the house was built without a "building license, project, plan, or anything." Ruda, in his role as mayor, was forced to stop the works by decree. This action was not driven by external pressures, but by the clear violation of building regulations.

Ruda related how he received a notification from the municipal technician indicating that the work did not comply with the legal requirements. With no other option, she signed the decree that paralyzed construction. Peinado, however, continued with the works, which eventually led to legal conflicts and sanctions.

The legal and economic repercussions for Judge Peinado

The legal conflict did not end with the stoppage of the works. Judge Peinado was sentenced to pay more than 75.000 euros to a construction company in Ávila for carrying out works on the home. The Provincial Court of Madrid ruled that the house did not have the "necessary connection of the sanitation system to the municipal network", which exacerbated the structural problems of the property.

Peinado argued that the basement of his chalet was flooded and had significant humidity. However, the court ruling made it clear that responsibility for these problems fell exclusively on the magistrate, due to the lack of adequate connection to the municipal sanitation system.

This situation not only reflects the illegality in the construction of the home, but also the negligence in the management of basic aspects of habitability. The judicial authorities were forceful in pointing out that the lack of connection to the sanitation system was not a construction failure, but rather a serious omission by Peinado.

The role of former mayor Ruda in the illegal chalet scandal

Hilario Gabriel Ruda, detailing the events that led to the stoppage of work, highlighted the importance of acting in accordance with the law, regardless of who was involved. Peinado's insistence on continuing construction without the necessary permits was a clear violation of urban planning regulations.

Ruda also mentioned that, during his term, he changed the City Council's technician to ensure that the regulations were correctly applied. This change was crucial to stop a work that was progressing without complying with legal requirements. The former mayor's determination to act within the legal framework was essential in exposing irregularities in the construction of the villa.

The importance of respecting construction regulations and their consequences

Undoubtedly, The case of Judge Peinado's illegal villa in La Adrada highlights the importance of respecting construction regulations and the consequences of their violation. The intervention of former mayor Ruda was key to stopping a work that lacked the necessary permits. This scandal underlines the need for responsible and transparent management at all levels, from urban planning to housing construction and maintenance.
