Carmen Marín starts prison sentence in Madrid jail

  • The defence team for Marín, who has been sentenced to three years and nine months behind bars, for the most part for falsification of documents, has been appealing for her sentence to be delayed, citing health issues

President of Parque Animal, the false animal protection centre in Torremolinos, Carmen Marín, started her prison term last week after voluntarily reporting to the Victoria Kent social integration centre (CIS) in Madrid after receiving notification to do so. From there she was transferred to a prison in the Spanish capital.

The defence team for Marín, who has been sentenced to three years and nine months behind bars, for the most part for falsification of documents, has been appealing, so far unsuccessfully for her sentence to be delayed, citing health issues.

They have submitted a request to the Ministry of Justice for a reprieve, alongside several medical documents outlining various physical and psychological problems she is suffering but the sentence is, at present, being upheld.
