There have been operations against the "prostitutes" in Magalluf in the past.

04-07-2013Archive

Calvia police yesterday issued a statement which explained that a woman has been sentenced to three and a half years by a Palma court for robbery with violence. She has also been banned from living within or going within three kilometres of Magalluf for five years. She will also be expelled from Spain once she has completed her sentence and have to pay 700 euros to her victim.

The woman, who had previous convictions and is in Spain illegally, assaulted a tourist on the Avenida Magalluf in the early hours of 4 September 2016. Together with other women, who have not been identified, she approached the man, pushed him into an alleyway and forced him to the ground. Among other belongings, she stole a credit card and fifty euros cash. The tourist's injuries were only mild - they were to a shoulder and to a hand - but he nevertheless required treatment over an eight-day period.

She was arrested by the Guardia Civil, and when it came to the court appearance, the town hall presented its own prosecution to ensure that restraining measures were included in the sentence, i.e. not going within three kilometres of Magalluf.

The police statement continues by saying that the town hall has added its prosecutions in three other cases for the same offence; these have yet to go to trial. The town hall is said to be wanting precautionary measures in order to "eradicate criminal activities of this nature in the Magalluf area".

Although the statement is not specific, it is clear that the woman was a mugging prostitute.

Magaluf has a bad reputation already. Allowing illegal prostitutes to operate there, and mug tourists , has to be eradicated and their punishments expedited, by immediate deportation. Their pimps and the females will have their illegal earnings hidden. Find their ill gotten gains, and use them to pay for their deportation, ensuring the pimps and females are removed from Mallorca. Otherwise Magaluf's reputation will further deteriorate.

Sadly this is all to do with the European Court of Human Rights.

We have gone mad in this world - we support the thief, murderer, criminal etc whilst leaving the victim to be traumatised, hurt, stressed, and having a great expense to re build their lives. The Spanish police were sued a €1 million by one of these ladies as she claimed against them a number of years ago.

Our tax payers money is being given to them. Criminals must laugh at us stupid, honest folk.

I’m afraid I have to agree with Lawrie. After she has served her time she will plead family connections to avoid being sent home which is no doubt Nigeria. The authorities, by sending her to jail for 3 and a half years but banning her for FIVE from Magaluf are basically admitting this fact. If not she should be put on a plane a day after her term is up. Something that just won’t happen.

When it comes to the bit she wont be deported. No chance. As Richard says she'll probably be "stateless". Anyway the Human rights crowd will step in and stop it. Having said that, as Henry says, its a start. Lets hope the police are on to them constantly.

Just look at them. Gigantic beer goggles to go anywhere near! Why don’t the police just round the lot of them up, even if no infraction has taken place, check their papers and if not legal, deport them immediately to their country of origin? I guess they might have pulled the old ‘burn the passport’ trick though. Maybe someone cleverer than me can enlighten us on what the authorities do then? Anyway, as always, kudos to the local police who seem to be a lot more effective than the U.K. police.
