    With photo of couple. Worth translating for those interested.

    The prosecution are asking for 7 years prison for the Husband and wife owners. Both deny fraud and taking deposits for developments which had no planning permission. They are also accused of failing to return deposits.

    A little follow-up (in English) on the day’s proceedings…….deny, deny, deny.

    Goodstich, wherever you are, at least some satisfaction/justice for you if the Prosecutor gets his way.

    yes, about time too. Until those who have at least won cases against them in court get justice though, what chance for the rest? The Aifos couple will have probably served their sentence before some cases even reach sentence? How many years misery and bankruptcy have they sentenced people too for their crooked ways?

    Latest news is that the Prosecution toned down the request for 7 years to 4 years! Since then the case seems to have dropped out of the news. On the spanish comments someone who lives near them said the couple are still leading a wealthy lifestyle.

    Don’t let anyone say ever again there is such a thing as “laws in Spain that will protect you”.

    As one of the posters said under the article: “This decision sets a dangerous precedent. It is illegal to sell properties without having the building permit” which is exactly what these two did.

    Spain and their so-called laws? Don’t hold your breath, you’ll probably expire.

    I think the decision just demonstrates the chaotic and malfunctioning way in which the law operates in that country.

    If any commercial contract passed through my hands which stated that it was subject to the laws of Spain I wouldn’t touch it with a barge pole. Such is the low esteem that I and an increasing number of other people place on the legal system in Spain.

    emails, letters to be sent to all in the British Consulate & their representative offices who sits on the fence to say that they cannot interfere with the laws of the Country.

    …..just proves once again what a farce the Spanish justice system is. It’s really not a justice system, it’s just a scam that’s not being dealt with by anyone, and at best a lottery. This example confirms our worst fears, that the crooks continue to win at the expense of their victims. 7 years should have been an absolute minimum sentence. Even when cases are won, many still don’t get their money back. I think help can only come from outside Spain, and that doesn’t look promising at the moment either. Right or Wrong continues to stand for nothing in Spain.
