A PROPERTY owner is facing a hefty fine after gathering more than 100 young people in his home for a private mass.
Residents in Pinares de San Anton in Malaga called Policia Local after seeing several groups of children and young adults heading up to a property at the top of an upmarket urbanisation.
Police knocked on the door of the home at around 1.30pm and were answered to by the owner, a man in his 50s.
After seeing there were more than 100 people present, it was immediately evacuated.
The young people had just arrived back from a Christian camp in Cadiz and were preparing to celebrate a mass ‘with musical instruments’, the owner said.
The events took place on July 30, when COVID-19 regulations stipulated no more than 25 people could gather at a property.
That has since been reduced to 15 following a continued spike in coronavirus cases.
The property owner has been denounced for violating public health measures in Andalucia.
