Police jailed for suspect beating

The men were policemen in Manacor, Mallorca.

Two local policemen in Manacor, Mallorca, have been sentenced to two years each in prison for beating a man in 2005.


As well as the prison sentence the policemen will not be able to hold public service jobs ever again and they will have to pay €860 to the victim.

The incident took place when the police, in the execution of their duties, forcibly removed the man from a popular nightclub.

They then went on to throw him to the ground and handcuff him in order to take him to their car where they proceeded to kick him and hit him with their truncheons.

The man tried to flee but was unable to get away.

The prosecution explained that the policemen exceeded what would be considered reasonable restraint of the victim.

The victim suffered cuts, severe bruising, and cracked ribs which took more than 30 days to get better.
