A DUTCHMAN is suing the Spanish government after spending 12 years in jail for a rape he did not commit.
Romano van der Dussen was jailed in 2003 for allegedly attacking three women in Fuengirola.
Dixie is already serving a life sentence in the UK for the rape and murder of 18-year-old Sally Anne Bowman in 2005.
Van der Dussen said he is seeking compensation for ‘damage caused’ and for being ‘wrongly deprived’ of his freedom.
He always maintained his innocence and is still contesting two lesser charges of robbery and sexual assault, which were not overturned in the appeal court.
Van der Dussen is soon to release ‘My Spanish Nightmare’, an autobiography detailing his ordeal.
