The mother of a British man murdered near the Spanish town of Benalmadena in April 2010 has spoken of the problems she has had in dealing with the Spanish authorities since his death.

Paul Fether, 31, was killed almost five years ago but his mother Beryl revealed that she had received no definite information about what happened to him and still did not know where his possessions were.

Beryl said that it was really upsetting as she had no clue what actually happened. She admitted that her son was no saint, but said the Spanish newspapers had reported that he was tortured for around an hour and a half. She said she was unsure about what he was actually doing in Spain but that he didn’t deserve to die what the coroner described as a “slow death”.

She went on to say it was only because of the local Spanish paper that she knew what was going on, but that she had no idea when the murder suspect was due to stand trial and that she had a feeling she was not going to find out. She also revealed that she had to pay 16,500 euros to have his body transported back to the UK.
