Deníz is accused of fraud and bribery, and is being tried in Gran Canaria  along with 11 other ex-officials, businessmen and related individuals, including ex-Cabildo President Dimas Martín.  Yesterday, the court lifted charges against five of the accused.

If Deníz is declared fit to stand, the case should resume tomorrow.
