An Elche judge has rejected a request for the reopening of two beach bars that were closed by Torrevieja council last summer.

The bid came from the company that owns two of the three closed outlets, with the premises located between Cala Piteras and Punta Prima.

Torrevieja council closed down the popular bars after they discovered they had been operating since 2009 without a license.

The company, Gestión y Restauración Punta Prima SL, said that the closures were causing them significant economic damage and that it could take years to resolve the matter.

Judge Carmen Casado saw things differently and said that the interests of Torrevieja council came first, without having a view on the actual merits of the closures.

    The question that nobody has answered is, ‘why can the bars not now be granted a license?’
