Two British men have been accused of 'forcing and coercing' a missing waitress into a Mercedes outside a celeb Costa del Sol nightclub, the last day of their kidnap trial heard today.
Lawyers acting for the family of Agnese Klavina who disappeared after getting into a Mercedes outside a Costa del Sol nightclub have asked judges to jail a British defendant for up to 16 years if he is found guilty.
Latvian-born Miss Klavina disappeared without trace after leaving the celebrity Spanish nightclub with two Britons, including the son of a multi-millionaire.
CCTV footage showed Miss Klavina apparently being forced into Westley Capper's Mercedes S63 before the property developer's son drove off from Aqua Mist in Puerto Banus with friend Craig Porter, a court heard.
Essex-born Capper, 41, and Liverpudlian Porter, 37, are currently facing up to 12 years in prison on kidnap charges as Miss Klavina is feared dead even though her body has never been found.
Lawyers acting for the 30-year-old's heartbroken family said they were increasing their jail demand for Capper from 12 to 16 years if the three judges set to decide his fate find him guilty of her unlawful detention.
Prosecutors accused the Brits of 'forcing and coercing' Miss Klavina into the car in closing speeches on the last day of the pair's kidnap trial today.

The private prosecutors, who under Spanish law can take separate legal action to the state, told the trial court in Malaga CCTV footage of her last known movements was a 'filmed crime'.
Enrique Bacigalupo, who defended Lionel Messi in his 2016 tax fraud trial, said he was now demanding a stiffer penalty for Capper because he believed the 41-year-old expat had made her get into his car 'against her will' in a first offence and repeated his crime by ordering a club doorman to close the door when she opened it to try to get out.
He said separate CCTV footage taken four days later showing a carpet and a suitcase being taken aboard a boat by four men including the two defendants later took out to sea was not proof she was dead but helped 'shape an odd picture that might explain why she had disappeared'.
State prosecutor Maria del Carmen Tirado, who is demanding a prison sentence of 12 years for both Brits, told the court in her summing-up speech Miss Klavina got into the mens' vehicle 'with fear'.
'The images show that when she left that nightclub she didn't want to go with Capper and she didn't want to get into the car with the two defendants', she said.
'She perceived the danger. Capper and Porter were the last people she was seen with and she entered their car because she was coerced into doing so.'
The pair have also denied boarding Capper's boat four days later at Puerto de la Duquesa near Gibraltar with a large suitcase and carpet to dispose of her body at sea

Miss Klavina, aged 30 when she disappeared in the early hours of September 6 2014, met the two Brit friends during a night out at Aqwa Mist, which is popular with Premiership footballers and was the scene of a wild fight in June 2016 in which ex-TOWIE star Jake Hall nearly lost a kidney.
Capper, whose wealthy dad John made his fortune from real estate, insisted early on in the investigation he dropped Miss Klavina off near a flat she was staying at for the summer close to the home of former England manager Fabio Capello after she changed her mind about going back to his house to party.
Father-of-four Porter, 37, from Liverpool, says he fell asleep on the back seat of the Mercedes before the drop-off because he was 'drunk and tired'.
CCTV footage of them leaving Aqwa Mist was played in court on day two of the four-day trial last month, and analysed by police who said it showed Miss Klavina was forced into Capper's car and defence experts who insisted there was no coercion.
No DNA evidence was ever uncovered in the Mercedes or the boat Capper and Porter went out to sea on from Puerto de la Duquesa port near Gibraltar that assisted the prosecution case.
