MALLORCA – A number of people were arrested on Thursday in Palma de Mallorca for allegedly laundering money.
Treasury officials raided the offices of a law firm in Palma and a branch office of a bank.
Treasury ministry sources said the operation was being carried out with the anti-corruption prosecutors.
The alleged fraud is said to be linked to accounts held in Panama.
Accounts were held there in order to hide the nature of the fraud.
Police also raided an office which was said to have acted as a ‘nest’ for the fraud.
Thirty officials from the Treasury were involved in the operation.
No numbers have yet been given for the number of arrests or the amount of money involved.
