The Franco family has asked the Court of First Instance number 1 of A Coruña to postpone the date of December 10 set for the delivery of the Meirás pazo, as well as “at least two months” to remove the goods from the end of the inventory . They have done so in a letter sent to the court in relation to the decision of its holder to proceed with the provisional execution of the sentence by which they were sentenced to the return of the pazo, a measure to which the Francs advanced that they would not oppose , “provisionally” and pending resolution of his appeal to the Provincial Court of A Coruña.
The Francos begin moving the Pazo de Meirás in 50 trucks loaded with works of art, including two statues from the Pórtico de la Gloria
Now, his legal representation maintains that the dictator’s relatives are “forced to hand over a property of considerable dimensions and inside which there is a large number of ‘things’ (personal property)” that, he recalls, did not appear in the sentence. Gone is the Sunday in which the Francos claimed to have between 30 and 50 trucks ready to empty the property “immediately”.
In addition to qualifying the date of December 10 as a “notoriously short” deadline, they claim to annul it after the court adopted precautionary measures to proceed with the inventory of the assets. In them, the Francs are prevented from taking property until the court authorizes it.
After the visit made by the judicial delegation, the Heritage technicians and the lawyers to the property on November 11, the court also agreed to give a period of 20 calendar days, extendable, to carry out the inventory with the material of images and videos collected .
Based on all this, and against some precautionary measures against which the Francs have already advanced that they will present an opposition letter, they request that the date of December 10 for the delivery of the property be “without effect” and that they be given a deadline Once the inventory has been made, a period of “at least two months” for the delivery of the same.
