The Mayor of Penamacor let the backers’ debts forfeited the company

Doubtful debts related to water supply, wastewater treatment and solid waste collection more than tripled in the municipality of Penamacor, Castelo Branco district, between late 2014 and late 2018. The main reason for this increase lies in the fact that the mayor António Beites Soares did not pursue the enforcement procedures instructed by the council services and prescribed for this reason. Among the debtors who have benefited from the prescription are some supporters of the socialist mayor, namely owners of local restaurants and the former first secretary of the municipal assembly, who was also elected by the PS and resigned on his own initiative in September.
