Alfredo de Miguel, Koldo Otxandiano, Iñaki Telleria and Xabier Sánchez, former PNV leaders, will be forced to imprison for a corruption case known as the De Miguel case.

In the trial, El diario notes that the economic damage caused by irregularities in the Youth Department has been applied restrictively. The defendants in the Miguel case must return to the Autonomous Communities the amount of EUR 146,230,80.

The seals did not have the entry registration code or correspondence with the book containing the documents arriving at the Administration.
