From childhood, all children are taught to be law-abiding citizens.
While a few will always believe they are above the law, what are we to think – or do – when lawyers themselves ignore the rules.
That is the case today in Andalucia, where there is clear evidence that some lawyers – for financial gain – have blatantly and consistently ignored the laws of the land.
This has led to people innocently spending their life savings on dream homes that turn out to be illegal nightmares.
There can be only one course of action for such law-breakers. They must be taken to court for their wrongdoings, along with all other also involved.
And if found guilty, they must be punished.
Justice must be seen to be done, not just because expatriates who believed in the legal profession have been cheated, but because bent lawyers must not be allowed to flout their profession, and bring into question the whole of the Spanish legal system!
