The Supreme Court has upheld the conviction of former Chief Inspector Juan Antonio Rodríguez Romero, head of the National Police in Ronda, for bribery relating to obtaining favours in brothels.
The trial began in November 2011 following an Internal Affairs investigation into prostitution and the exploitation of foreign women during the period 2003 to 2007. In May 2013 the Málaga Provincial Court fined the Chief Inspector €1,600.
Three other National Police officers and a Guardia Civil were acquitted of various offences.
The Supreme Court rejected the appeal of the Chief Inspector, stating that he had used his position to obtain free drinks and sexual favours.
