The opposition Spanish Socialist Party (PSOE) on the Calvia Council slammed the ruling Partido Popular yesterday for doing “too little, too late,” over Magalluf.
In a hard-hitting statement issued to the media yesterday the socialists said: “Why is it that only now prostitutes can be arrested for robbing tourists when they have been doing this for years.” The ruling council have said that they were unable to act against the prostitutes operating in Magalluf because street prostitution was legal but this week 11 prostitutes were arrested in Magalluf but the council claimed that they had been caught “red handed” robbing tourists.
The socialists accused both the Mayor of Calvia, Manu Onieva, and the President of the Balearic Government , Jose Ramon Bauza, of doing nothing about Magalluf.“Where have Bauza and Onieva been? Why have they allowed Magalluf to be in the headlines for all the wrong reasons once again.”
The socialist also claim that bar and nightclub inspections should be carried out at the beginning of the summer, not once the season has started and they also claimed that the council had been caught wrong footed on Magalluf and were only now taking action.
