The National Police are keeping a close watch on a group of 26 German neonazis who are holidaying in the Playa de Palma. The group has been described as “extremely violent and dangerous” by the German authorities. The skin heads were met by police on their arrival at Palma's Son Sant Joan airport on Sunday and warned that they would be expelled if they caused any trouble. Sources at the hotel where they are staying said that there have been no incidents to date. The police were first warned about the group at the beginning of the month by the German Embassy and later by the police. The German police said that when the group had holidayed in other countries they had been involved in serious incidents. Sources say that the German tourists, all with shaven heads and between 1.80 and 2 metres tall, were “surprised” to be welcomed at the airport by the police. They were escorted to their Playa de Palma hotel and the police are in daily contact with the management. Various police cars are patrolling the area discreetly. The members of the group are aged between 22 and 50 and they come from Berlin. They are due to return to Germany tomorrow. The Playa de Palma hoteliers association was not informed of the police vigilance and until yesterday was unaware of the presence of the neonazi group in Majorca. Jordi Cabrer, chairman of the association, admitted that offers launched in an attempt to ease the situation caused by low bookings, had brought tourists with less money to spend than previous years. But he denied that there had been more public order problems than in previous years. The German tourists were travelling with TUI, who said that they were unaware of the nature of the group. A spokesman said that they had received no complaints from the hotel where they are staying.
