now that they are out on bail I hope it will not be the end of it!
I hope that they do not think that it will be forgotton about!
I respect the fact that bail is the right of any person but we are not dealing with the run of the mill person here.

On the Spanish news tonight we had the pleasure of listening to phone conversations of people like Roca and Yagüe that had bee taped by the police. Sounds like they wouldn’t lift a finger without a cash bung. Given the evidence, I can’t believe they will be able to wiggle out of this one.

Mark, If I were a betting person I think this will be a sure fire thing that they will get off..unfortunately.
Having read other posts I think this will end up as a “cover up” , with a don’t do it again admomishment.
Spanish Government has a big problem but to admit to the World that the country is corrupt is not going to be good for their economy. So those Brits conned by officialdom and lawyers are going to be swept aside and buried.
I hope I am wrong but Governement departments world wide are very good at whitewashing .

I do truly hope not but on reflection I can think of no country that hasn’t “moved sideways” any corruption issues that could bring shame on them or might damage their economy.
They all do the same things. Demand a BIG investigation, arrest a few, release them and if necessary then take to trial minor accomplices ( developers in this case) and it looks to all that they have everything back on track…respectability again !!!!!!.
Meanwhile………………………………….. life goes on as normal and thousands more defrauded.

Melosine, sadly I think you are right. It amazes me how it was allowed to go on for so long. Rumour around here is that most of the properties will be legalised and the developers will get their hands slapped.

Am sure that all but a few properties will be made legal. Can you just imagine the demolition costs involved !! Not to mention the catastrophic visual effect…like WW2
Meanwhile in order to “save face ” they will probably have a few individual homesteads ,owned by foreigners , demolised that were built without ever going near a planning department .
