Prior to the trial, the public prosecutor had withdrawn charges against seven of the accused. However, there remained the matter of private prosecutions. At the Provincial Court in Palma on Monday, private prosecutions were dropped against six of the seven. They included the director of Tito's nightclub, Jaume Lladó, and a former director-general of tourism at the Balearic tourism ministry, Pilar Carbonell.

The seventh person is Jaume Nadal, an official at Calvia town hall.
