Thus, the evidence obtained as well as the investigation report will be illegal. Therefore, it can not be submitted to any court statement.

It does not have a registered office in Andorra and therefore acts are outside the law. This is the reason why you can not claim in case of fraud, broken agreement, etc. The initiation of any action against this Private Detective would mean recognizing that a foreign person has been hired without the license.
