Alicante-based Notary Public J.A.N., acting for Nykredit Realkredit Marbella branch, has been indicted on a count of false mention on a public document. 

The Notary Public had issued a certification stating what the balance of the loan was and the methodology for calculating the interest. Against logic, the Notary accepted a statement from Nykredit that introduced a reference interest rate never before mentioned in the loan contract (Euribor).

When lawyers acting for borrowers challenged the Notary, he admitted his mistake and requested Nykredit lawyers to rectify the statement, only to be rebuffed by the borrower.

The Court has ordered the Notary to appear in Court to be interrogated.
