Telegraph Ex-pat Spanish Planning Scandal

A new support for owners of 'illegal homes' in Spain comes from the Telegraph with a page called 'Telegraph Expat Spanish Planning Scandal'.

Telegraph Expat is launching a campaign in support of the hundreds of thousands of British and other expats who have fallen victim to urban corruption and the confused state of property law in Spain. If you have been affected by the problem, please add a pin documenting your story to our Expat Directory (telegraph.co.uk/expatdirectory) under the pin category 'Illegal Spanish Property'. Over time, this will generate an interactive map which will document and expose the full extent of the problem.

The Corruptódromo

Corruption is becoming a popular topic in Spain, after the Gürtel case in Valencia, Madrid and elsewhere, a bugbear that is plaguing the Partido Popular, has now received a proper balance from the PSOE's own ERE pension scandal in Andalucía. Where will it all end?. The 'No Les Votes' site (following from the Ley de Sinde anti-copying law, many Spaniards will no longer support the three parties who supported the law - after pressure from Washington - namely, the PP, PSOE and CiU) has now produced the Corruptódromo - a map of Spain with the main political corruption cases marked.
