MORE than two years after British couple Ken and Helen Priors’ Almeria house was demolished, a court has finally ordered them to be rehoused.
Vera town hall has been instructed to put the up Priors in a home comparable to what was torn down, or at least pay the rent on a house.
The court confirmed that the couple must be rehoused until their case against the town hall is resolved.
However, Vera council has already declared it will appeal the decision despite claiming it “will help the Priors” in the meantime.
The couple have reportedly found a suitable house and are now waiting to receive clearance from officials.
They are suing the authorities for 600,000 euros for bulldozing their home in January 2008 despite an ongoing judicial process.
