A BRITISH family whose home is at risk of being demolished is taking the Junta to court.
The claimants, who wish to remain anonymous, are taking their case to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg claiming the Junta de Andalucía do not respect their human right to property.
Maura Hillen, president of property owners association, AUAN, said: “We believe that this claim is the first of many such claims against Spain for not respecting the fundamental right to private property.
“This couple’s case is particularly acute.
“Their house has planning permission granted by the town hall but the regional government challenged it on the basis that the house risked creating an urban nucleus.”
The family is claiming that the Spanish system has failed them and that the Spanish state does not sufficiently respect the right to property established in the European Convention of Human Rights.
