IBERDROLA warns the mayor who refuses to pay the light that they will take action against him if he does not recover

Víctor Manuel López, the Mayor 'InSumiso' of Batres, has assured that he has received an email from Iberdrola in which the company threatens to initiate criminal actions against him if he continues to refuse to pay the invoice of the City Council.

The small town of 1,800 inhabitants, located 35 kilometers from Madrid, became famous at the beginning of September when López, former firefighter and independent mayor, announced its intention not to pay the consumption of the consistory in the light crisis.

"I think it's time to take a first step from the institutions to defend the interest of citizens and at the moment I have the support of several municipalities," the regidor explained at the time. IBERDROLA, on the other hand, was surprised by this movement, since the contract is equal to that of the other 8,100 municipalities of Spain and, therefore, electricity is paid at a fixed price independent of the volatility of the wholesale market, which He is currently shot.

At the time, López defended his decision, even though the current situation does not directly affect the City Council. With the movement of him, he said then, he could denounce the consequences of "the continued speculation of prices that electric companies are causing Spanish society and especially the humblest economies."

Now, denounces in a statement collected by Europe Press, "Iberdrola S.A., with a social capital of 4,774,566,000.00 euros threatens the mayor of batteries with criminal actions." He also wonders what the company will do "against Sánchez" after the package of measures presented by the government and counterattack arguing that "if these multinationals are being defined in something is in the scarce empathy and solidarity they have with their people, with their homeland. In the end always against the weakest. "
