The Bar Association, concerned about the possible transfer of the courts of Torrox to Vélez-Málaga

The possibility that the judicial parties of Torrox and Vélez-Málaga end up merging into one, based in the Palace of Justice of the capital of the Axarquía, continues to fly over the activity of the Torroxeña judicial headquarters, which is located in a building of 1863, which presents numerous deficiencies and architectural barriers. Although the matter would depend on a legislative change at the state level, which was already raised by the former Minister of Justice, Alberto Ruiz Gallardón, in 2013, the Malaga Bar Association regrets that the Board is not taking steps to advance in the construction of new judicial units in Torrox.

In this sense, the dean of the Bar Association of Malaga, Francisco Javier Lara, has shown on Tuesday his "concern" about the risk of eliminating the judicial party of Torrox and merging with that of Vélez-Málaga, "since the Junta de Andalucía has not announced any important action to solve the serious problems presented by the courts of this municipality, "he said.

Lara recalled that the building does not have dungeons and is not accessible to people with disabilities. In addition, the courts have problems with humidity, air conditioning and do not have an adequate file to store documents and files. "In recent weeks we have heard announcements from the Ministry of Justice regarding the judicial headquarters of Marbella, Estepona and even Torremolinos, which we will see if they are met or not, but," said the dean, who stressed the importance of this judicial party, in which about a thousand Free Justice files were processed last year.

The Delegation of the Bar Association in Torrox on Tuesday welcomed the oath of three new lawyers. At the ceremony, chaired by the vice-dean of Malaga lawyers, Immaculate Attention, Antonio Ángel Marín Ortiz, Alejandro Guerrero Fernández and Rocío Recio Conejero have joined the profession. As godfathers and godmothers have exercised Francisco Vega Adredano, the deputy of the Government Board Sandrine J. Sánchez Florín and Lidia María Peláez Núñez.

Atencia, who has thanked the presence of the mayor of Torrox, Oscar Medina (PP), has encouraged the jurors to participate and be involved in the activity of the College and has affirmed that practicing law "is a privilege, an honor and a responsibility". "We exercise the right of defense as the most sacred of rights in the process," he said.
