Mallorca scandal of abuse of home children

-

eMallorca is shaken by the sexual abuse of home children. The responsible Mallorcan social authority of the Spanish holiday island (IMAS) admitted after several advertisements and media reports that one was aware of several cases. On the holiday and party island, 16 residents, 15 girls and a boy were found to be seduced by prostitution for years due to inaction by the authorities. Social workers, who were quoted on Wednesday by the newspaper “Diario de Mallorca”, described this number as strongly understated and criticized the authorities. The affair sparked outrage and horror in Palma and throughout Spain.

The staff sharply criticized the authorities. “We have been displaying these conditions for more than three years. But the IMAS has not taken any action, ”said a social worker. It is “not about a few dozen victims”, but many more. In some homes almost all underage residents are tempted to prostitute. Mostly children between 13 and 17 years are affected. They all have no parents or come from very difficult backgrounds – and are therefore particularly vulnerable to exploitation and manipulation.

According to this, other minor roommates often acted as “matchmakers” to get small sums of money or drugs. But adults should also not only be involved in the scandal as customers, but also as organizers. It is not yet known whether an organized crime ring is behind the exploitation. The fact that girls were not only seduced into prostitution, but also forced to face violence is not excluded.

Children’s homes in Mallorca are often poorly managed

Against this background, the experts quoted by “Diario de Mallorca” accuse the authorities of “absolute negligence”. Criticism does not only come from social workers. Lawyers dealing with abuse in homes also said “El Mundo” that these facilities were “poorly managed” in Palma. Those responsible often looked away when a thirteen or fourteen year old disappeared from a home for days.
