Bartolomé Cursach will not have the possibility of leaving prison before the start of the series of trials that he faces. The investigating judge, Manuel Penalva, says that requests for liberty will be denied, given that even while in prison he has been seeking to influence witnesses. This has included, according to El Ico, one of the Son Banya drugs barons, offers of up to two million euros for intimidating witnesses. As well as the risk of interference with witnesses, the judge considers Cursach to be a flight risk.
