The lawyers in the Malaya case now underway at the Provincial Court in Málaga, investigating Spain’s largest ever municipal corruption scandal based in Marbella Town Hall, consider that the court case will last ‘far more than two years’.
The lawyers consider that a final date cannot be set, because doing so will limit the rights of the defendants.
The case started on September 27 last year with defence questions, and finally got into the real evidence on December 13. However since then it has got no further than hearing evidence from one small section of the proceedings, the real estate deal known as ‘Crucero Banús’, which is now expected to continue until the end of this month.
The money laundering hearings will then start in March, and are expected to last at least six months.
The case is drawing out because of long questioning sessions of some of the witnesses and accused. Most consider the extra time being taken is simply the price to be paid for good justice."
