Double standards in Estepona

A VOLUNTARY association claiming to be non-political has been exposed for its links to the CDS party.

The Estepona Independent Expats Residents Association (EIERA) – set up to help foreign residents in Spain – made the claim in a double-page advert which appeared in an English-language newspaper rival.

But the Olive Press can reveal that the organisation is operating out of the CDS’s Estepona offices, while its founder, Janet Vigo, is a candidate for the party.

Set up two years ago, the fully-registered, non-profit association used the same advert to call for greater transparency in the local town hall.

  1. I’ve just returned from the UK, and read your article. I’ve never contacted a newspaper before but I think its really sad, that your newspaper chooses to print such a clearly one sided article. I’ve been coming to Estepona for a number of years now. I’ve had used the free services provided by this voluntary association and I know that its much valued service by those who use it. I have found the team to be friendly and incredibly helpful- where else could you go to in this area and receive free impartial legal advice too?? Have the Olive Press actually interviewed anyone at the association to get a balanced view? What more can I say?

  2. Hello Maureen. I believe you did not read the article correctly. The article did not say that they assosiation did not assist or were friendly. The point is that they said they are not politically linked which is obviously not the case. How do you thing anyone would be able to provide free impartial?? legal advice. Who funds this office? What more can I say.
