The Guardia Civil this morning (Tuesday) undertook a major operation against fraudulent holiday sickness claims. Led by the force's organised crime and anti-drugs squad, officers raided various businesses and homes in Puerto Portals, Bendinat and San Agustín. Six arrests have been made. The two alleged ringleaders, British women, are well-known on the island for, for instance, business interests in bars. One of the premises raided was a popular bar in Portals.
