SENIOR members of the Mallorquín police, including a commissioner, are facing ten years in prison for their involvement in the Tolo Cursach case.
They are accused of committing homophobia against an agent investigating the corruption scandal.
It is one of two key trials in the Cursach case which are set to take place over the next two weeks.
The other involves a hearing against a Romanian citizen who faces four and a half years in prison for allegedly threatening a key witness.
The Romanian purportedly threw the witness to the ground, kicking him and threatening him.
He supposedly committed the crime so that the witness wouldn’t give evidence against another Romanian, who had also been charged with intimidating the same witness.
