    …… re. the EU’s latest report on Land Grab and real estate abuse presented to the EU Parliament yesterday.

    The Spanish MEP’s don’t accept the EU’s findings and want to make their own amendments/changes. They have until the 27th Jan to do so.

    The report even criticises the Spanish Constitutional Court for not protecting the rights of purchasers by not firmly applying article 33 of the Spanish Constitution which refers to private property.
    Will have to read up on that one.

    And, surprise surprise, the Spanish also want the threat to remove European funding removed from the text
    – well they would, wouldn’t they. Knew that one would touch a raw nerve.
    What did I say yesterday about wanting their cake…..!

    PP Euro deputy, José Manuel García Margallo said the text of the report was “barbaric”. !!! 😯
    (he’s the one who said: “I feel sorry for those affected, but the European Union has no responsibility for town planning and these are questions which have to be resolved in Spain”)
    I could point him in the direction of something that’s barbaric, demolishing Mr. & Mrs. Prior’s home and the treatment of countless thousands of others caught up in lengthy and/or corrupt court proceedings over illegal builds.

    Interesting info, thanks for the link, Charlie.
    I’m tempted to say that if the Spanish MEPS have been given just 7 days in which to present their amendments they will never meet the deadline 😉
