Murcia Supreme Court investigates unlicensed pig farm

SPAIN - The Chief Prosecutor at Murcia’s Supreme Court has ordered an investigation into the unlicensed pig farm owned by the regional government’s Animal Health Chief.

The investigations will try to determine if the planning permission José Pastor received from the local Town Hall to build an extension to the farm constitutes a crime.

Pastor´s 1,600-head pig farm was granted permission to extend to 4,000 animals in 2003, despite the fact that the farm had no opening licence. He applied for an opening licence in 2005.
