MADRID - AFP - A Spanish family wins one million euros (1.4 million dollars) in compensation when the Supreme Court ruled it should be paid for family jewels which disappeared from a bank locker.

The Supreme Court ruled the Assin family should be paid 1,091,072 euros for the missing jewels the late Alejandro Gomez Assin had deposited with the national bank in 1937.

The state had appealed against a 2000 provincial court judgment in the family's favour after Assin's son, Alejandro Gomez Fajardo, had launched a case for the return of the jewels or a cash settlement.

Prior to that ruling, the case had been kicked from court to court for 15 years.
