The Third Section of the Provincial Court of Zaragoza has issued an order in which it supports that the express eviction of


can be ordered

as a precautionary measure.

It thus responds to the promoter of the occupation of the old

Hotel San Valero

, opened in 2008 and closed in 2011 due to the economic crisis, located on Manifestation Street in the Aragonese capital, where 22 people settled for three months.

The property is owned by the Management Company for Assets from Bank Restructuring (Sareb).



appealed the eviction carried out on July 28 ordered by the Court of Instruction number 7 of Zaragoza.

It alleged that the European Convention on Human Rights could be violated because the order affected a vulnerable group by not having a home.

The Court rejects the appeal and denies any possibility that the


can return to the hotel.

It affirms that there is no legitimate title that justifies the occupation of the property and that the municipal services should be the ones that, where appropriate, relocate the occupants if the circumstances so require.

Some of the 22 people who lived there camped on the porches of Plaza del Pilar and others dispersed around the city.

José Ruiz Ramo

has been a speaker

The Third Section of the Provincial Court of Zaragoza cites, as an example, the way to act in


, where it is possible to regain possession of a property if the


does not have a title and the police report is accompanied by the one who accredits his property.

Or in Germany and France, whose police officers are empowered to evict in certain cases in just 24 and 48 hours, respectively.

Also what happens in Italy, where it is the court that gives the immediate order to the Police to regain possession, once the ownership of the property and the absence of title by the occupant have been proven.
