‘Fake contracts’ gang nabbed

NATIONAL police agents, working with Immigration and the Border Brigade, have arrested five people over the sale of fake work contracts.

A further six have been implicated in the investigation, which revealed that fake contracts were being sold for up to 2,000 euros each. Charges of forgery have been brought against those arrested.

The main person involved in "Operation Pinzón", developed in collaboration with the Provincial Labour Inspectorate and the Social Security's General Treasury, is a Spanish national.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
