Constitutional court throws out the Priors case

The Constitutional Court of Spain has rejected Len & Helen Priors case that they are entitled to economic compensation for the demolition of their home by the Junta last January.

The Court upheld the ruling of Court Nº 2 in Almería, that their house was illegal and had been built without obtaining the necessary permits from the Junta de Andalucía. Hence, the demolition was justified and no compensation is forthcoming. This is the end of the line for that particular appeal for them, as the Consititutional is the Supreme Court in Spain. The ruling, however, does not seem to cover whether or not correct legal procedures were followed in notifying the Priors of the case against them. (among others)
