THE court that ruled on the infamous ‘Malaya’ trial has authorised the sale of 98 hunting trophies, for a total of €21,050.
The items belong to infamous ex-councillor for Town Planning, Juan Antonio Roca, who spent 12 years in prison for his part in the Marbella council corruption scandal.
Any money accrued will be used to pay Roca’s civil liabilities in the Malaya case and other judicial proceedings.
Mr Roca’s hunting spoils include an elephant’s head, a hippopotamus head, as well as a variety of stuffed animals, including lions.
It is estimated that between 1997 and 2002 Mr Roca spent more than €29,000 on hunting safaris in Zimbabwe, Kyrgyzstan and South Africa.
