THE spokesperson for the UM Majorca Unionist Party, Bartomeu Vicens, will appear in a Palma court today to explain the deposit of 51'000 euros in a Cayman bank account in 2001.

Vicens has been caught up in the anti-corruption investigation into alleged irregularities in the purchase and sale of plots of land on the Son Oms industrial estate in Palma during the 1990's.

The investigation is being handled by the Balearics' top two anti-corruption judges and, according to the prosecution, Vicens deposited the money in the offshore account to apparently avoid paying tax.

Yesterday, the President of the Majorca Unionist Party, the newly appointed Balearic Minister for Tourism Miguel Nadal, admitted that he did not approve of Vicens having the Cayman account.

Nadal pledged his party's full cooperation in the Son Oms investigation but said that, with regards to Vicens' implication in the case, he must be presumed innocent until found guilty.
