    The Mayor of Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz, has reached agreement with the Junta de Andalucía to regularise another 200 properties in the town which were constructed illegally during the time of the GIL administration, but it seems the only ones getting any compensation throughout all this corruption is the Town Hall.

    One of the developments now to be declared legal is the Jardines del Principe on the Golden Mile which is 40% over the legally built amount and the construction of which had blocked the sea views of neighbouring properties which had previously won a court order for partial demolition.
    Now the development can stay in exchange for the promoter giving the ground floor of the building to the Town Hall.

    So no compensation for the neighbouring properties who have had their view ruined and no doubt their homes devalued, but a whole ground floor ‘gratis’ for the Town Hall. Surely this is just a fancier form of ‘bribery’ by those in authority in exchange for legalisation or am I missing something ??? What has changed in principle from the old days??

    A similar situation is in the Jardines de la Costa, 61 homes in San Pedro Alcántara, where the promoter, José María Enriquez, is implicated in the Malaya corruption case. The construction of this development was only completed during the time of the present Mayor.

    Also to be legalised is the third phase of the La Cañada commercial centre where ‘another deal’ has been reached with the promoter, Tomas Olivo.

    ……………………………………………………………………………………………

    While on the subject of corruption (well it makes a change from all the news of the global ‘crunch’), ex-mayor Munoz must be feeling a happy bunny. He has done a deal with the judge where for the duration of the remainder of his prison term, every weekend gets to be spent at home.

    The prosecution is currently only asking he be given only 9 months for involvement in a deal (one of his many charges) where he allowed seven six-storey buildings to be built on land which should have been for sports facilities. Wonder what the kick-back was for that – the mind boggles. With this new weekends-at-home deal, two and a half months worth of days from that will be spent at home.

    It’s a tough life for this white-collar criminal – and who says crime doesn’t pay?

    Try & get a planning permission to build a number of flats in London. You will not get the permission, until unless you allocate up to 30 % as social housing. In some Councils it can go up to 40%.

    At least in the UK the ‘demand’ from the authorities is not made retrospectively in order to legalise something that is already built but shouldn’t have been built in the first place.

    Though applying things retrospectively, including new laws on old situations such as in Cho Vito recently , seems to be a Spanish speciality.

    Very good point Shakeel. It’s always struck me as dodgy business.

    What’s up with you today Fuengi ? Wake-up!!! 😆

    It looks like I underestimated ‘the deal’ between Julián Muñoz and the court. Besides the weekends at home, during the week he only has to sleep in jail, he’s out during the day doing whatever he wants to do. 😯

    Despite over a hundred more real estate cases pending against him (what do all those backhanders add up to?) it has been agreed he won’t be having his 3 year ‘jail’ 🙄 sentence increased. He’ll be out by next Summer…..joke, he’s already more out than in!

    Does he have a hold over this judge I wonder…..

    He says his health is much better now. I’m so pleased his stress has been eased.

    For your benefit Fuengi, the link: 😉

    how tough for him! Does he have a selection of pretty young girls to sleep with each night, who bring him a take away of choice and a few beers to keep his energy up?

    This article is just so insulting to any innocent buyers who has fallen foul of Spanish justice. Sickening, and proves once again that corruption is very much alive and well in Spanish courts.
