Police raided all the main venues on the White Island and found millions of Euros in cash stashed at Ushuaïa and Pacha.
Last weekend, the local police forces raided the main venues of Ibiza as part of the tax fraud recovery operation. Spanish newspaper EL Mundo reported that the tax officials supported by police entered Pacha at 6:30 AM and Ushuaïa at 8 AM same morning on September 15th.
Police also visited Grupo Empresas Matutes (GEM), the parent company of Palladium Hotel Group, which oversees Ushuaïa. The company management was aware of the visit and are not planning to make any statements for now.
Around 40 officials an police officers spent the day of September 15th counting large stashes of cash, which amounted to several million Euros in total. Tax enforcement agents also took documents for further review and investigation.
“Now we just have to verify if the amounts correspond to those declared in the companies’ accounting records.” Said a tax service official.
The tax fraud operation “Chopin” has already covered Space and Privilege this summer and it’s only odd that the Ushuaïa and Pacha management weren’t ready for the visit.
