The court and the prosecutor consider that the oral phase of the proceedings will last for more than two years, and then the drawing up of the sentence will take another six months.

The case, which started on September 27 2010, was initially expected to finish at the end of this year, but the process against Juan Antonio Roca and the 94 other accused will probably still be continuing at the end of 2012.

That makes it longer than the Colza oil case in 1987 which lasted 15 months, and the Madrid Train Bombings case in 2007 which lasted four and a half months.

The President of the Málaga Court, Francisco Javier Arroyo, alerted last Thursday that the duration of the case is ‘unsustainable from a organisation point of view’, give that the magistrates are having to dedicate themselves to the case almost exclusively.

The case is now into its second section, on money laundering, and it’s hoped that section will be completed before the August break.
