Rainer is a big man with a big heart, a colourful character with a great sense of humour who is very popular and well known in the community. He's a very loving family man who enjoys walking his dogs, singing the blues and taking part in karaoke.
In April of this year Rainer went to get his residencia here in Spain, when he was arrested and detained in Madrid for a month before being extradited to Germany on tax evasion charges. As we have been living in England, since we married 43 years ago, this came as quite a shock to us.
I cannot divulge too much as the court case has just started and apparently will continue for another 3 months. If on the other hand any time during the process we can raise 50000 euros he will be able to go free.
This October Rainer will be 70 so I am appealing to everyone who has ever been stuck in red tape to please help us to close this book on a sad chapter in a normally fun filled life.
Any donation big or small will be a great help.
Thank you for taking the time to read my plea.
