I think most people are aware of the good and bad in all countrys, and tarring everyone with the same brush is just ignorance. Having said that, we really must face the facts about how bad the justice system can be in Spain. Not only are court decisions often just wrong, as has been proven many times recently, but painfully slow as well! We are very aware of the positive aspects of Spain, which is why many of us wanted to invest in it. I would think for everyones sake though, the seriousness of the recent cases shows a problem that needs bringing out in the open so that it is not only forced to change, but can be seen doing so. I really think the irony is, that in the long term, the bad publicity that many people in Spain find very hurtful, will improve things for everyone, if it leads to change?. If things don't change then the bad feeling can only get worse, and that will be a great shame for all.
For those not invoved in the corruption/bad court decisions, this probably seems very harsh on Spain, but for those of us involved, it has been and still is a disaster. We realise this could happen anywhere, it's how it's dealt with that causes such much misery. If a case is black and white, is it really to much to expect justice without waiting years, costing us a fortune, and still not feeling confident that the people deciding our fate will use common sense?
