A police spokesman said yesterday the four people, of various nationalities had over-inflated the value of the shares by at least four times. Yesterday, police raided two offices in Palma and Santa Ponsa and made the four arrests. We have arrested two Britons, a Canadian and a Spaniard, said the spokesperson.
