EXPENSES SCANDAL

Disgraced Dívar may get juicy payout package

Former Supreme Court chief justice faces calls to return 30,000 euros

Former Supreme Court Chief Justice Carlos Dívar, who resigned in disgrace last month for abusing his judiciary expense account, could receive a 208,000-euro payout over the next two years.

Dívar's successor on the top court and on the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ), Gonzalo Moliner, said he supported the payout because if it wasn't made the council would be "violating the law." A CGPJ commission also recommended giving Dívar the compensation but approved the recommendation with minimal votes — three to five — sources told Europa Press.

Complaints have been filed at the Court of Audits to insist that Dívar return the 30,000 euros he used to pay for long weekend trips to Marbella and other destinations.
