The alleged son of Julio Iglesias has taken his paternity case to the Strasbourg court
The lawyer for Javier Sanchez Santos, the alleged son of Spanish singer Julio Iglesias, filed an appeal on Monday defending this cause of affiliation before the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in Strasbourg (France).
intention Defending the “genetic truth about the doomsday”given that the singer’s alleged son has a genetic report that proves the family bond, Fernando Osuna’s attorney’s office reported in a statement.
This guide was obtained by a private investigator in the United Stateswho picked up something left by Julio Jose Iglesias Pressler, the son of Julio Iglesias, and determined that there was a 99% genetic link between the two, according to the company.
And the legal case concluded in Spain last March, when the Constitutional Court (TC) rejected the appeal of this alleged son to recognize the paternity of the singer, saying it was “something that has already been judged”.
In 2020, the Valencia Provincial Court (this is Spanish) overturned the ruling that a year earlier a lower court had estimated the paternity suit brought by Javier Sánchez Santos against the singer.
The district court concluded that it was a “res judicata”, without analyzing the merits of the case, given that the alleged son and his mother had previously encouraged other legal proceedings.
In July 1999, the Spanish Supreme Court confirmed that Julio Iglesias was not the plaintiff’s father, in contrast to what Portuguese mother Maria Edith Santos Raposo had been caring for.
Subsequently, the TS itself (in 2021), as later in the TC, rejected Javier Sánchez Santos’ defense resources, also considering them to be “res judicata”.
Osuna is confident that the European Court of Human Rights “will not conflict with its rulings,” listing up to eleven similar decisions, asserting, “Genetic fact, i.e. scientific fact, prevails over the res judicata or the prohibition of reopening trial for procedural issues.”
In the lawyer’s opinion, it is the judgment of the Court of Valencia of 6 May 2020 that commits the violation when it overturns the judgment by agreeing to belong to the Court of First Instance.
