Madrid’s Institute of Legal Medicine Rents a new Office whilst its HQ in Valdebebas Languishes

20 February 2020 – Brainsre.news

The institute’s headquarters was going to be one of the stellar buildings in the Ciudad de la Justicia in the neighbourhood of Valdebebas (Madrid). Popularly known as the ‘Donut’, the property now languishes, 14 years after its construction.

The implementation of the IML was agreed upon a year ago, in February 2019, by the then Minister of Justice, Yolanda Ibarrola, and the STAJ, CSIF and UGT trade unions. The institute, which operates independently of the system for the administration of Justice, gathers together workers from various psycho-social teams to carry out reports and forensic assessments when judges and prosecutors so request.
