The National Police dismantled a criminal organization that was dedicated to supporting the legalization of Moroccan businessmen in Morocco and their families with high buying power. They falsified documents that allowed them to be recognized as Spanish businessmen. Eight people were arrested in the operation against illegal migration. One of them was a practicing lawyer who had a Granada office and detected illegal regularizations of 15 individuals from four families.
These investigations were initiated by a previous investigation, in which agents of the Granada Provincial Immigration and Border Brigade warned a Moroccan businessman that he had obtained work and residence authorizations in his country after presenting false documents that attributed him as a false proprietor. A shoe store was found in the middle of the city. There has never been any trade.
After the documentation process was concluded in Granada by a lawyer who represented the Moroccan citizen, the lawyers discovered that the lawyer would have taken the case to Nador at the Consulate in Spain. The foreigner was a Moroccan businessman. The regulation process extended to his spouse and children. The family only stayed in the country for short periods to avoid occupying more than the temporary space that foreign residents may have elsewhere. The flats and premises were rented by a real estate company. To get the consent or silence of the owners, they were also used as a means to simulate false commercial activities. They were informed that the legal practice was being used if they claimed that no businesses were located on their premises.
They gathered data to confirm that this was a regular and ongoing practice of the legal office. This meant that amounts between 20,000 to 40,000 euros would have been charged to Moroccan foreigners in order to illegally register them as false businessmen within our country. The investigation reveals that the lawyer and the person in charge at a realty company were also involved. A second woman of Spanish origin was also included in the group. She was responsible for accompanying the lawyer to Tangier and Nador to capture people. To whom to provide illegal regularizations and act in an interpreter. This would also serve as a legal representative for the regulation and renewal of these individuals' files.
Investigators confirmed that four Moroccan families with affluent economic status were illegally regularized. This means that 15 people have residence permits in fraud of the law.
