- The Guardia Civil were back at the Ibiza nightclub this morning after spending 17 hours at the venue yesterday.
Spanish police have returned to search Amnesia following their first raid in the early hours of July 5th.
According to local news outlet Diario De Ibiza, The Guardia Civil resumed their search of Amnesia this morning after spending 17 hours in the club yesterday—from 7 AM through midnight—before allowing the club to reopen for a Together party. (There was some uncertainty about whether that party would go ahead, with the promoter at one point tweeting that it had been cancelled.)
The identities of four people arrested have been confirmed: Amnesia owner Martin Ferrer, Marti Ferrer, who's the owner's son and the club's artistic director, Amnesia general/business manager David de Felipe and Amnesia accountant Vicente Pérez de Montis.
Police, who are "investigating alleged crimes against the Treasury" according to Diario De Ibiza, also raided the suspects' properties in Ibiza and Barcelona, as well as a boat owned by Martin Ferrer. They also searched security boxes in various banks in Ibiza and looked into various bank accounts related to the suspects. An Ibiza-based IT company that works with Amnesia was also searched.
Tonight's HYTE event at Amnesia is due to go ahead, with the party's promoter posting the words "yes we are open" on his Instagram account.
