A court in Granada has summoned the Rodriguez-Acosta brothers, owners of the Comarex property development company that built Carmenes de Mar, to testify in court in relation to the urbanisation. In January the Provincial Court of Granada rejected the appeal of Cerro Gordo S.L., the Comarex company that was found responsible for the building defects in Carmenes del Mar and ordered to repair the damage. The company, however, has declared itself insolvent and has entered receivership. The Comarex Group have been accused of fraudulently declaring bankruptcy as a ploy to avoid paying for the repairs.
The matter is being investigated by the Granada Magistrate's court which has summoned the Rodriguez-Acosta brothers to testify on the 9th of March. The home owners who have made the fraud accusation will testify on the following day, March 10th. The judge will also hear from the official receiver in charge of the wind-up of the company, to determine "if it is true that among the assets of the company there is no element that allows one to venture that the complainants will find satisfaction"
In addition, the court has asked the Fiscal and Economic Crime Unit of Spain's National Police to investigate whether the Comarex Group has benefited in recent years from lucrative construction projects awarded by the Granada City Hall, "with special reference to the Parking Mondragones, and to the commercial activities of the group in other countries, in particularr in South America".
