Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Alouni's lawyer lodged at least two redress appeals with the Constitutional Court before the Supreme Court decision, contesting the preventative prison decreed by the National Court as a violation of the rights to freedom and due process. The first was in January 2005 (referred to here), and the second was in January 2006. The second appeal was rejected by the Constitutional Court in March 2007 on the grounds that, after the Supreme Court upheld the previous conviction on appeal, there was no longer a situation of preventative prison subject to redress.

En un viejo país ineficiente, algo así como España entre dos guerras civiles, poseer una casa y poca hacienda y memoria ninguna. -- Gil de Biedma
