Six members of the alleged gang were sentenced by a court in Elche receiving a total of more than 27 years in jail between them, but now five of their sentences have been revoked by the Supreme Court finding their was no other evidence leading to their convictions after throwing out the evidence of the Alicante National Police, which tapped into the phone network.
