The Ibiza Court of Instruction Number 4 has ordered the release of E.S.C., a 45-year-old Spaniard who was arrested on Monday for impeding the removal of three boats, one of which belonged to him, from a location just three meters away from the road to Cala Tarida. E.S.C.’s property, which is adjacent to the boats, has allegedly become an extensive illegal dumping ground.
The Sant Josep Local Police apprehended the man for obstructing the removal of the boats. He used a heavy truck to block the crane’s access to the area, which caused a delay of at least an hour and a half in the operation. The Consistory provided this information yesterday.
According to the Balearic Islands Superior Court of Justice (TSJB), the accused has been released on bail until his case is referred to a criminal court due to its particular circumstances. E.S.C. will be required to testify once again in either Court Number 1 or 2, depending on how the matter is allocated.
In addition, E.S.C. faces allegations of making threats towards members of the Maltesa del Mar association, who were inspecting purportedly illegal anchorages in the Porroig Bay, which he allegedly exploits. The association is committed to conserving the Pitiuso seabed.
The owner of the Cala Tarida property, where he amasses tons of polluting waste and is purportedly accountable for the illicit anchorages in Porroig, was previously sentenced for threatening to kill Monica Fernandez, the councilor of Environment of Sant Josep. The fine imposed was roughly eight euros per day for a month, prompting Fernandez to express her dissatisfaction with the verdict to Diario de Ibiza, stating that “it comes very cheap.”
