Police at the incident on the Son Castelló estate.

30-04-2017Vasil Vasilev

More than twenty Palma and National Police officers went to the scene of a mass brawl on the Son Castelló industrial estate on Sunday morning. They responded at half six to calls concerning a fight outside the Eden Boliviano, a club on the estate.

At least fifty people were involved in the brawl. No one was seriously hurt, but twenty had suffered injuries such as cuts from glass or knives. When the police turned up, a number of people ran away, despite being injured. Others were so drunk that the police had difficulties taking statements, and versions as to what had caused the fight differed. One was that someone tried to take a bucket of bottles from a group of Bolivians. Another, given by a woman with a swollen eye, was that it had started because her sister was being hit.

In addition to initiating charges against individuals, the local police will also be pressing a charge against the club. It has permission to stay open until 5.30 in the morning, but the incident occurred an hour later. It is not the first time that there has been trouble at the club.

When you allow a bar to stay open until 5.30am, you are inviting trouble. This island has got to change the laws. If you look at all the 'drink and drive' accidents that happen around our island, most occur between 5.30am and 7.00am. What a surprise! As for the bar, the sanction should be very high. In our society, it is within our control to obey the laws or to break them. Multiple infractions simply demonstrate a complete lack of respect for the law and should be punished heavily.

For those of you who are unfamiliar to it´s whereabouts, it´s a long was from Magaluf and probably much to the dismay of the local press, no Brits were involved.
