UNITED NATIONS: Homeowners will take their problem to the international stage.
THE owners of some 50,000 unauthorised homes in the Malaga countryside, most of them in Axarquia, continue to fight to have their rights recognised.
The threat of demolition still hangs over homeowners’ heads, and they have been working steadily with groups like Save Our Homes (SOHA) to make changes to regional legislation.
Now they have decided to bring their problem to the international stage, by mobilising to set up an inquiry before the Committee of Economic, Social and Cultural Rights of the United Nations (UN), a process which their lawyers are currently working on.
In fact, in the annual SOHA meeting that will take place on January 20, the homeowners will vote on whether they want to move forward with this matter, as it will cost them €12,000 plus IVA (value-added tax).
