Guardia Civil at the headquarters of the Balearic Ports Authority on Friday. | Pere Bota
All five of the Balearic Ports Authority's senior directors who were arrested on Thursday have been released on charges. They include the president, Joan Gual de Torrella. Individual charges are defrauding the public administration, embezzlement and "prevaricación"; the latter, for which it is difficult to give a direct, single-word translation in English, refers to public servants who make arbitrary decisions, knowing them to be unjust.
