SPANISH SENATOR DIES OF A HEART ATTACK

Rita Barbera has deceased from a heart attack today in Madrid. Senator and Mayor in Valencia (Spain) was hosted in a centric hotel in Madrid. There was unwell and she had to be looked after by Summa in early morning hours.


Doctors were not able to revive her and then they have confirmed her death.

Barbera was in Madrid from Monday. She arrived to state before Supreme Court, there she rejected any responsibility on the alleged money laundering committed by PP municipal group in the consistory that she chaired for 24 years.

Barbera was summoned for this case last September 13, one day after PP obliged her to resign party after 40 in militancy.

In spite of the pressure by her party and all opposition, she kept her senator record. This allowed to keep his seating before Supreme Court and to distinguish herself from rest of accused people.

Barbera was Mayor in Valencia from 1991 to 2015, deputy in Valencia at Valencia Courts between 1983 and 2015, and currently she was senator by autonomic election.

She was seen for the last time yesterday during control session in the Senate to Mariano Rajoy.
