He former Director General of Labor and Social Security from Junta de Andalucía and one of the main condemned in the political piece of the court case on employment regulation records (ERE), Francisco Javier Guerrero, has passed away this Sunday.

This has been confirmed to Europa Press his lawyer, Rafael Ramírez-García del Junco, who has indicated Francisco Javier Guerrero “he began to feel ill at dawn” and that “in the absence of the autopsy confirming the cause of his death, it seems to have been a heart attack “.

The lawyer has assured that Guerrero “was fine” and that in recent months he had an “animated” attitude because “it seemed that things were going to start to turn out better.


Guerrero was sentenced in November 2019 by the First Section of the Seville Court to seven years, 11 months and one day in jail and 19 years, six months and one day of disqualification for a continuous crime of prevarication in media bankruptcy with a continuous one of embezzlement, by the specific procedure through which the regional subsidies with which the fraudulent EREs and direct and supposedly arbitrary aid to companies were financed.

In June of this year, Guerrero formalized his appeal bound for Supreme Court (TS) alleging four reasons, starting with an “infringement of criminal precepts, as well as other norms that should necessarily be observed in order to pass judgment”, since the contested judgment does not take into account “applicable legislation” in the case, such as the 1994 ministerial order that regulates the granting of aid prior to ordinary retirement in the Social Security system, to workers affected by company restructuring processes; or the 2013 state decree on special rules for the granting of extraordinary aid to workers affected by company restructuring processes, among other invoked regulations.
