The National Police has dismantled a criminal organization dedicated to money laundering from drug trafficking in Mallorca. The detainees diverted cash to Cuba, the Dominican Republic and the United States.
60 people have been arrested -55 on the island and five in Madrid- for alleged crimes of money laundering and falsification of documents. Two Mallorcan companies are involved in money laundering by drawing up false invoices to mask the origin of the illicit money by simulating construction work.
The ‘Gunpowder operation’ began as a result of the investigation initiated on the island for a crime of drug trafficking, where it was learned that the criminal organization was led by an individual of Cuban origin and nationalized from Spain.
