IT’S no secret that bureaucracy in Spain can be a nightmare… but few have fallen more foul of the system than British expat Tim Hawkins.
It’s a tragedy that Tim’s young sons have had to grow up without a father, that his marriage has crumbled, and that he has been left facing homelessness in a foreign country.
And all because he unwittingly got linked to a tax scam – over a decade ago.
Yes, he may be a convicted criminal, and perhaps deserves some punishment… but the suspended six-month sentence he received has been dragging on for seven years now.
He now deserves to go home.
