Officers make social security fraud arrests

TWENTY-EIGHT people have been arrested following an investigation relating to social security fraud. Arrests were made in more than a dozen provinces, including in Murcia and Alicante.

A fake company, which had a head office in Zaragoza, reportedly offered contracts to 126 workers giving them access to benefits and unemployment payments, and allowing some to renew their residence permits in Spain by claiming to work for the non-existent company.

It is alleged around €238,000 has been defrauded from the public purse.
