Ten years after the court judgement was given, Marbella council has finally received all of the compensation to which it was entitled following the case known as Saqueo 1.

The court decided that Juan Antonio Roca, lawyer José Luis Sierra and accountant Manuel Jorge Castel should pay 24 million euros to the town hall in addition to serving different prison sentences, and the final amount received by the local authority, with interest, is 30.5 million euros.

It has been a complicated process, especially as most of Roca's wealth was frozen for his role in the Malaya case.
