Spotlight on: Javier Garcia Leon

THE youngest of six brothers Javier Garcia Leon, 37, was born in Villamiel, a village of fewer than 1,000 inhabitants located in Caceres Province, in Western Spain. Javier moved to Madrid after finishing law school in Caceres. “In the year 1996, being in college, I joined the PSOE, the day after they lost the general elections, I went to the Socialist Party´s headquarters with the firm conviction that it was time to become a part and participate,” he said.

“I began as a lawyer in Madrid in late 1997 and worked with the Child Protection Agency of the Madrid Region through an agreement between this and the Madrid Bar Association,” he said.

“The main role in the institution was to issue reports that were to be sent to prosecutors,” the issues covered were very diverse, anything from web sites appearing minors, abuse among others.

“During the time as a apprentice in the profession, I came in contact with the Scandinavian world and more specifically with Denmark, and I started to work with offices on the Costa del Sol,” he said.

At the beginning of 2000 he moved to Fuengirola where he works as a lawyer.

Among experiences which Javier says marked him as a person is the time he worked with an international cooperation program in Arequipa (Peru), which included the refurbishment of an orphanage, headed by Father Pozo.

“This together with my first professional experience taught me very much about life, myself and others,” he said.

“Each person we meet in life has a story to tell and a way of seeing things, it is important to listen and learn. This is something that means a lot to me in my everyday life with friends, family, work and politics.”
