Couple arrested for allegedly forcing daughter into begging


A ROMANIAN couple has been arrested in Palma de Mallorca for allegedly forcing their daughter into begging.

The investigation began after an off-duty police officer saw a young girl begging at a supermarket in Calle Pascual Ribot last Thursday (April 9). He reported that she was wearing really fine clothes and sandals, despite the cold temperatures registered that day.

He then alerted a National Police unit who confirmed that the girl was underage. They also found out that her mother was begging at a different entrance of the same supermarket.

Once the 40-year-old father and 39-year-old mother were found, the officers contacted Mallorca’s Social Services to find out whether the couple’s eight children were in need of welfare.
