About 70 English and Irish families have joined forces to bring a class lawsuit for alleged fraud and embezzlement relating to the construction of 350 apartments in the area of Arroyo Vaquero, Estepona. The events date back to 2006 when Ocean View Properties reached a marketing agreement with the promoter Sun Golf Real Estate Development Ltd to entice the British and Irish families to invest in the promotion. However, four years on and nothing has materialised, no promotion, no building and no money. Antonio Flores the lawyer, who is representing the families, estimates that probably around 20 million Euros has disappeared.
The emergency department for outpatients in West Estepona has no thermometers. That is the situation a couple faced last Monday afternoon when they went to the Ambulatorio with their 5 year old after he had spent the night with a fever of 39 degrees.
When they arrived the doctor on duty said it was not possible to take the temperature of the child as there were no thermometers available at that time in the emergency department.
