British couple win right to compensation for demolished home. - Posted:
Len and Helen Prior, a retired British couple whose home in Almeria was demolished last year by the Andalucian authorities, have won an important battle in their fight for compensation.
The Spanish Supreme Court has ruled that the demolition order was illegal for not having followed correct procedures that would have given the Priors a chance to defend their case. The ruling to demolish their home took place without their knowledge, and with no chance of appeal, which the Supreme Court has found infringed the Priorís legal rights.
16 months ago, in January 2008, that demolition order was used to tear down the Priorís villa, as they looked on helplessly. Len Prior collapsed as his home was demolished.
