Palma.—The Balearic Anti corruption Prosecution Service is going to be bolstered by the arrival of a new public prosecutor.
No one has been named yet but the Balearic Chief prosecutor, Bartomeu Barcelo, has made it clear that, considering the mounting number of lengthy and complicated corruption cases his team of three anti corruption judges are having to deal with, more staff are needed in order to cope.

At the moment, the three anti corruption judges, Pedro Horrach, Juan Carrau and Miguel Angel Subiran are investigating 25 cases of corruption including the Palma Arena case which involves the former Balearic President and Spanish Environment Minister Jaume Matas and the Duke of Palma, Iñaki Urdangarin. Most of the cases are related to the irregular activities of the Matas/Majorcan Unionist Party coalition government.
