UK-Spain Asset Recovery Forum

News Spain - March 2014

User Rating: / 14
PoorBest 

 

ses jornada_recuperacion_activos_1British and Spanish experts met in Madrid from 24th to 26th February to address the issue of asset recovery and to deepen the knowledge of each country´s legal framework, with a view to improving performance in this area. Asset recovery is crucial for successfully tackling organised crime by ensuring criminals are deprived of their ill-gotten gains.

Building on the excellent cooperation that exists between Spain and the UK, participants presented on investigative techniques and the solutions that each legal system offers to ensure that criminals are not only brought to justice but also deprived of the proceeds of their crimes, thus preventing both countries from being perceived by criminals as safe havens for criminal assets.

NHW JAVEA UPDATE

News Spain - March 2014

downloadBurglary: I have to report that a house in Call Pic del Montasia has been burgled twice recently. The house is a holiday home and only checked weekly by cleaners. It does not have an alarm.The burglars gained entry by forcing off a reja then breaking the window. They stole some audio equipment and a laptop. They returned after the window had been fixed but not the reja and entered the same way. This time they stole a very large TV. In an area where many houses are used as holiday homes and vacant for long periods we need to look out for our neighbours as well.

Singles Stableford Golf Competition at Oliva Nova

News Spain - March 2014

 

oivaToday Tuesday 4th of March 2014, we played a Singles Stableford Competition at Oliva Nova, and there were 48 players. 
We were delighted to have four guests to Pego Golf Society today, namely Simon Fox, Robert Jenkins, Brian Barden, and Terry Leonard.
We had a guest prize and that was won by Brian Barden with 30 points off 22 handicap
This morning, the wind was howling at more than 30 km per hour, with gusts in excess of 40 km per hour, so many of the holes were inaccessible in the normal number of shots, and we see this, as we look at the overall scores.

British residents get new option for obtaining healthcare in Valencia

News Spain - Jan-Feb-2014

User Rating: / 10
PoorBest 

British residents without access to state healthcare in Spain now have the opportunity to join the new Spanish health insurance scheme. The Valencia Government has just introduced the Convenio Especial, a scheme that is part of wide-ranging reforms to the health system announced last year. Martyn Standing, from the healthcare team at the British Consulate in Alicante, said: "This is great news. It means almost everyone who currently lacks the right to state healthcare can now get themselves covered. "We would urge people who are in need of health cover to sign-up. Waiting until you're ill before you sort out access to a doctor can easily result in an unwelcome bill."
