The Guadalpín Hotel and apartments (AIFOS) will be legalized. In return AIFOS and 2 other developers who have built illegaly do some gardening on 3000m2 of land, big deal 🙄 Some of the people involved in the malaya case have apartments in the Guadalpín including Isobel Pantoja!

Katy – in the light of above, just have to re-post something you wrote on Wednesday.
“Meanwhile in a Malaga court yesterday a man was given 6 months in prison, a fine and demolition ordered for constructing a 70m2 wooden house..he was British”.
So is this how it’s going to go? 👿

Beggars belief doesn’t it. Just need to correct my post about the wooden house demolition, the he was a she, everything else correct though.

Maybe she could offer to do a spot of gardening for the judge?

this is just so bad. It should be front page news in my opinion, those two stories just sum up what a farce the Spanish justice system is.

No wonder so many Spaniards take such a “light” view of their fiscal and other obligations. I understand the “economic” case for preserving the Guadalpin(employment etc).
However, if the authorities are genuinely serious about dealing with corruption it should be demolished to send out an unequivocal message to the construction industry.
Does anyone really believe that Snr Roca will be heavily penalized? I sure as hell do not. The story of the Brit and his shed reminds me of the German and her house in Chiclana.
My take on “Malaya” is that there are just too many influential people involved for appropriate measures to be taken.
Vamos a ver,

La Cañada shopping centre at the back of marbella will be legalised in exchange for land from the owner/constructor (who was arrested in the malaya case!) Some of the shops operating in there are owned by the ex-mayors wife and daughter. It all sounds like legalised brown envelopes to me.

A council meeting in Marbella on Tuesday agreed to postpone any further revision of illegal building licences granted during the GIL era.
The governing Partido Popular voted down a PSOE proposal to continue with the process begun by the Marbella Management Committee of revising illegal building licences granted during the years of the GIL local government.
They said claims for compensation from property demolition could mean substantial expenses for the municipal purse.
The meeting agreed to postpone the revision until the town’s new local development plan is definitively approved.

How can there be justice in that???!!! I cannot believe what is happening.
It seems there is no end to those involved in the corruption, it is a circle
of corruption each protecting each other.

The junta have told marbella that they must revise them. Think it was in Diario Sur yesterday.
