DEMOLITION dates for the nine Almeria homes facing destruction by the Junta have been put back pending an appeal.
Initially due to be knocked down on April 9 the British pensioners will now finally be able to defend themselves.
The group were slapped with orders last Christmas eve without knowing their homes were declared illegal in their absence.
The licences were issued eight years ago by the local council but they had no Junta approval.
The ‘Albox Nine’ have been through a huge ordeal with Terry Haycock suffering temporary blindness and facial paralysis, brought on by the stress of lving under the axe.
Homeowner John Burns, 82 has also suffered a hernia and his wife Muriel, 70, has had a nervous breakdown.
