    If, pocketing millions, destroying the reputation of your country, destroying its social plans, destroying its nature & the faith in its legal system is worth a year in prison. What signal is the Country sending to the outside world ????

    On the basis of the above the canoeist, should be getting a prison term of say five minutes.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for the article shakeel.
    One year says it all. Spain has no desire to clean up it’s act and there is no prospect of an end to all the corruption.
    All the bribes this man has taken are worth a lot more than one year in prison. He should be made an example of. Does he know the judge?

    ……perhaps his brown envelopes got wet in the canoe?

    the message confirms what we know. Justice in Spain often depends on the person, not the crime!

    ….and under spanish law, two thirds of the tariff won’t be served in non-violent cases. The time of the trial is then deducted from the remaining sentence. So I think this chap will be unlucky to serve more than 10 weeks in jail. No wonder he isn’t sweating about it, EASY LIFE

    In the words of Richard Littlejohn “You could n´t make it up ,could you?”
    Unbelievable but no real surprise. Corruption in Spanish does not mean what it does in UK.

    I’m not sure if I’m right here, but isn’t this sentence only for one of the (smaller) cases brought against Roca?
    It is quoted as being a “Malaya offshoot case” being only re. him paying the judge Francisco Javier de Urquía the sum of 73,800 € for ‘favourable treatment’. I also think the sentence is relatively short as he has now promised via a deal to tell all/the truth in future cases

    Am hoping he has a LOT more ‘time’ coming to him in the future and that the fat lady hasn’t started singing just yet.

    “From now on I’ll tell the truth…”
    Does he know how to tell the truth?
    We know for a fact that he is a corrupt, dishonest and dishonorable man with no regard for the law.
    & does he want a pat on the back for “telling the truth”?
    If the authorities made an example of him then maybe the other corrupt politicians would think twice before breaking the law. There’s no danger of that though is there…

    Charlie: You maybe right.

    Forestfire: The law & spirit of the law is respected when it for the betterment of the citizens of a Country and all its citizens are equal in the eyes of the law, the legal system works & is held in the highest esteem.

    Would, you respect the law in the above circumstances, so why should Roca do it

    Roca is singing like a canary now.

    He has once again admitted his guilt in a real estate deal Marbella. He has now accepted a plea deal of nine months in prison and a 2.4 million € fine for influence peddling in the ‘Belmonsa’ case.

    The Belmonsa case relates to an agreement between Marbella Town Hall and the Belmonsa company for the building of a 12 story building and 112 homes on land classified in part as being for public use.

    So that’s one year and nine months so far, and still counting.
