Captains arrested
OFFICERS of the National Police have arrested two Algerian men, who they believe were considered ‘captains’ of a migrant boat (due to their knowledge of the sea) which arrived in Mallorca on December 14 carrying 18 people.
Lights out
THE Balearic Government has asked that all public Christmas lights across the Island should be switched off by local Councils at 8pm each evening to ensure that there is no encouragement for families to leave their homes to view them.
Party alert
WORRIED about the likelihood of revellers ignoring curfew instructions, officers from both the Guardia Civil and National Police have been tasked with scanning social media in order to try to spot any New Year’s Eve parties planned.
THE mandatory closure of large shopping centres over two weekends and public holidays means that some establishments, faced with significant financial shortfall may consider placing some of their staff on furlough (ERTE).
