Hello to you all,
I also wrote to my MEP, Caroline Jackson back in March 2005 regarding my fraud case. She approached the relevant officials in the Foreign Office who contacted the Consultate in Alicante. This was her reply:
“I have now heard back from the relevant officer in the Consular Directorate in the Foreign Office concerning your case. I am sorry that you will find the response disappointing but the options open to the British Consul are limited because he is not able to intervene in the Spanish legal process.
Please let me know if you feel that I can be of any further assistance to you, although given these limitations, I fear that this may not be the case.
I hope that the outcome of the court decision is favourable.
Carole Jackson MEP”
Todate, we are still awaiting a decision from the court. The Judge ordered the thief to pay the monies into court but he has appealed.
The words jurisdiction and appeal seem to be the norm in Spain with regard to court cases.
Would be very happy to take part in your protest. Will send you a pm.
Wishing you all success.
