Group behind €45million money laundering scheme arrested in Valencia
Eight people were detained in Malaga for alleged money laundering and crimes against territorial planning. They include two members of Malaga City Hall’s Urban Development offices, and a Local Police officer.
These three have since been released, although the council has initiated disciplinary proceedings against them, but one of the detainees was remanded in prison after appearing before a judge. The policeman has been suspended.
The arrests took place in Malaga, Alhaurin de la Torre and Rincon de la Victoria, and several searches were carried out by the Guardia Civil.
Secrecy has been imposed upon the case but Spanish daily El Mundo reported that the investigation, which began last year, is regarding alleged irregular distribution of plots in Churriana.
