Roca estate goes to the state

AN estate worth 15 million euros is to be seized by the state to pay some of huge debts owed by former Marbella planning svengali Juan Antonio Roca.

Roca has agreed to hand over the La Caridad estate in San Pedro to pay off some of the 23 million euros he owes the authorities.

The eight hectare estate has a heliport, chapel, veterinary clinic and bodega.

Over 100 pure-bred horses valued at 400,000 euros were housed in the stables and a Miro painting was famously gracing one of the toilets.

Roca is currently being tried for his involvement in the Malaya corruption case.
