It beggars belief that a Spanish lawyer has been allowed to continue trading even after being found guilty of stealing €22,000 from a client.

We were amazed when in January the Malaga Law Society told us it did not believe there were grounds to strike off solicitor Samuel Huesca Triano, the lawyer in question.

How can someone who commits such an obvious crime – and is even jailed for it – be allowed to practice again?

That is why we are proud to have played a part in changing the minds of the Malaga Law Society.

Whether it was leant on from above or not, this regulatory body must now take disciplinary proceedings against Triano.

Hopefully this long-overdue decision will finally mean justice for Aranza Munoz and her husband Jose Luis, five years after the money they had entrusted to Triano was stolen from under their noses.
