Supreme Judge Lorenzo del Río was asked about yesterday’s decision by his superiors in Madrid, and said that judicially there are no obstacles. “It is 100% a political decision when to send in the bulldozers” he said.
And President Susana Diaz of Andalucia said that “Justice has finally been done”, whilst adding that the “competent authorities” continue to study the “various plans etc that we have prepared”.
The annoucement came along with a statement from the central Environmental Ministry saying it would work with Andalucia to demolish the hotel and restore the region to its former beauty. Spanish Vice-President Sáenz de Santamaría said that she expects Andalucia to press ahead with the demolition plan ASAP. The matter is entirely a Junta de Andalucia decision.
The estimated cost of this project is 7,17 million euros.
A political decision is expected next week.
