INVESTIGATION: National Police seized cocaine.
NATIONAL POLICE have arrested 17 people in connection with a scheme which arranged 186 false domestic partnerships and marriages of convenience between Spanish and South American citizens in Malaga City.
The people involved charged €2,000 to process the paperwork in order for South American citizens to obtain Spanish residence cards.
Police have investigated who they claim to be the administrators and the manager.
The manager, a 62-year-old Spanish man who passed himself off as a lawyer, has been arrested for alleged document forgery and crimes against Spain’s welfare system.
The group created a fictional company to forge documents such as employment contracts, police claimed.
