There has been lots of trouble with the squatters. The young couple with children that moved in and replaced the previous squatters in the squatter apartment in Bloque 6, were violent. The Police took initiative to a court case of domestic violence (“Violencia de Género”) between the squatters and the property owner next door was asked to a witness in court. The young squatter woman withdrew the case meanwhile the property owner next door was sitting waiting to be called in to the court room. Thereafter, the squatter woman, filed a police report (“Denuncia”) against the property owner who had come to the court as a witness. The case against the property owner next door follow the same pattern and was withdrawn just when the session was supposed to begin in court.

The young man with a Pitbull, who is associated with “Jefe”, has threatened to kill the same man that “Jefe” earlier has been found guilty of threatening. The Judge at court #4 in Marbella found the young man guilty, but instead of paying the modest fine of 90 EUR, he went to a lawyer and appealed against the sentence. The appeal that the lawyer has given in is full of accusations without any proofs being presented.

The Police knocked the door of an apartment, next to the squatter flat (1-D), in Bloque 6 on 23 June 2019, 7:57 pm. The two policemen wanted to see the mobile phone of the man staying in the flat. They were looking for photos after another property owner, with big debt to the community, had called the Police and reported the man for pedophilia. The policemen looked at the mobile phone and realized it was a false accusation.

The tenant knocked on the door of another property owner and delivered threats in person: “You and your wife are going to have problems with me, I'm going to slap you now, I'm going to hit you, I'm going to finish both of you, you're going to the hospital. . .”. His defence in court was based on a false story that his daughter had been hit. Despite the fact that the tenant was found guilty he continued to insult the property owner and he also seems to have continue to distribute his false story among people within the community.

A group of property owners are preparing legal action against the administrator and the president for mismanagement of the community. Besides possible economical mismanagement, many property owners have experienced trouble with the administration for not replying to emails and avoiding dealing with issues.
