Just been reading an article which states that “Judge Miguel Ángel Torres, best known as the instruction judge for the first stages of the Malaya case in Marbella, has been called by the Andalucian High Court of Justice, TSJA, to appear as a witness in the second court case opened against the judge Francisco de Urquía. Urquía is accused of taking part in an attempted extortion with the businessman Arnaud Albouhair and luxury magazine editor Igor Mier. The case is linked to the Hidalgo money laundering case, also based in Marbella, which was being headed by Urquía a year ago. “
The case just confirms my worst doubts about the impartiality of the spanish judiciary system

Well spotted Richard.
May I add:
“Judge Urquía was sent to prison for two years in August for accepting 73,800 € from the ex municipal real estate assessor in Marbella, Juan Antonio Roca, in exchange for judicial favours”.
This judge deserves all he gets, I just wish there were some other judges similarly exposed.
I don’t understand why all the disgruntled lawyers who have their (good) cases thrown out don’t get together and make a formal complaint against certain local judges in Marbella/Malaga. It’s about time they were named and shamed.
Well done my lawyer for winning the case re. Los Lagos/Elviria yesterday in Madrid (not mine by the way) – I bet he wishes all his cases could be heard there.

just wonder whether the key to a successful claim is a strong case and a barrowful of money for out of court expenses 😉
Nah just a barrowful of money
Seem to remember from my history books that this sort of thing used to go on in the UK courts during the medieval age before they tidied up the legal system.
