THE Balearic Minister for Tourism, Miguel Angel Nadal, resigned yesterday in a bid to try and protect his family from being continually hounded because of his implication in two cases of the alleged misappropriation of public funds.

Nadal, the former leader of the Majorca Unionist Party, announced his decision at 1pm explaining that he had been toying with the idea of standing down for the past few months, ever since he was first implicated in the Son Oms property development investigation.

But, now that he has been summoned to appear in court for a second time over the alleged misappropriation of funds through a local TV and radio station, he has decided to defend his family and dedicate more time to proving his innocence.

The announcement was not entirely unexpected but it has disappointed the local and international tourist industry.
Yesterday, Hugh Morgan, the Majorca-based Director of Cosmos Holidays, Monarch Airline and Co-operative Travel said he was “very sorry”. “Like I said during the World Travel Market, he really did appear to be making the right noises. Over recent months we have had various meetings both in Majorca and in London and he appeared extremely serious about tourism.
