A MARBELLA nightclub allegedly used by the Irish mafia as a money laundering front is reportedly at the centre of a series of drug rape attacks.

According to the Sun, Policia Nacional have discovered that a number of women believe they had their drinks spiked before being sexually assaulted during nights out at the venue, which is owned by the Kinahans.

However as many of the women are either British or foreign, they have not made a formal statement to police.

It is believed this is because they do not speak Spanish and that it is extremely difficult to report a crime in Spain without presenting yourself at the police station.

The Sun reports that the unnamed nightclub is ‘known to be owned by the Kinahans and used for money laundering purposes.’

However investigators do not suspect the sexual assaults are at all sanctioned by the gang as too much police attention could put their operation at risk.

The cartel has allegedly used bars, taxi firms and other cash firms to wash its alleged drug proceeds since doing it through property was made more difficult following high profile Operation Shovel raids in 2010.

A source told the Sun: “Police have received strong intelligence that this is happening at this venue, but are having trouble getting victims to cooperate.

“Many of those involved are foreign and returned home after this happened.”
