English and Irish families bring lawsuit for properties that were never constructed

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.
