STILL MISSING: Agnese Klavina
STILL MISSING: Agnese Klavina

THE only suspects connected to missing expat Agnese Klavina are to be cleared of any wrongdoing, their lawyer claims.

The lawyer representing British expats Westley Capper, 37, and Craig Porter, 32, insists the investigation against them will be dropped in September when the Marbella courts re-open.

It comes after Spanish newspapers reported that the presiding judge had upped the investigation from illegal detention to unlawful killing, last month.

The pair’s lawyer at Cubism Law however, insists it is untrue. “Neither Mr Capper or Mr Porter were at any time under investigation for the unlawful killing/homicide of Ms Klavina,” he said.

“While our clients were for a time investigated for unlawful detention, we now have information from our client’s Spanish lawyers that the DNA tests are totally negative, the investigation against them has been closed and (they) will be formally discharged in September.”

The pair were under investigation after CCTV footage showed them leaving Aqua Mist nightclub, in Puerto Banus, with the 30-year-old Latvian on the night she disappeared, September 6, 2014.

Capper insisted he had dropped the Latvian home that night, while Porter claims he fell asleep in the car.

DNA samples were later taken from a boat belonging to Capper’s father John Capper after CCTV footage showed a ‘large bag’ allegedly being bundled on board it at Duquesa port in Manilva, a few days later.

It led to the Klavina family lawyer to state that Agnese is ‘dead and her body was dumped in the sea’.
