WESTLEY CAPPER, the British man connected with the mysterious disappearance of 30-year-old Latvian woman Agnese Klavina and a fatal hit-and-run incident which claimed the life of a 40-year-old Bolivian woman in San Pedro de Alcantara, has been released from Alhaurin de la Torre prison on bail.
Privately-educated Capper, 38, who is the son of a well-known property developer, was released on August 23 after paying €50,000 to secure his temporary release.
The Brit had been behind bars since the beginning of May, when his Bentley careered into mother-of-five Fatima Dorado Para as she tried to cross San Pedro boulevard, throwing her around 30 metres into the air before speeding away.
The car was subsequently found to have been travelling at double the speed limit, leading to the arrest of Capper and his 34-year-old friend Craig Porter, who were tracked down to a restaurant six kilometres away from the scene soon after the incident took place.
A breath test revealed that he was around three times above the legal alcohol limit, leading to his imprisonment amid charges of manslaughter, failure to aid the victim, driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, and false documentation.
In his court statement, Capper apologised for failing to stop and asserted that he felt “very bad,” before he made payments totaling €321,000 to the victim’s family in the days following the accident.
He later sent a hand-written letter from his jail cell, in which he stated that he knows there is “nothing that I can do to repair the damage.”
Capper is not allowed to leave the country nor drive a vehicle while he awaits trial, and he also faces a second court case on charges of aggravated unlawful detention over the disappearance of Ms. Klavina.
The latter vanished after leaving a famous Marbella club night spot with Capper and Porter on September 6, 2014.
