A school teacher in Vélez-Málaga has been taken into custody, accused of sexually abusing female pupils at his school.
The incident took place in the Colegio Público Las Naciones and involved five possible victims of ten and eleven.
It was the parents of the victims who raised the voice of alarm, which triggered a police investigation, ending in the arrest of the 60-year-old teacher, who is from Granada.
He was arrested on a Friday, brought before a magistrate that Sunday, who ordered his being remanded in custody. A judge has since placed a gagging order on the case.
Obviously, the arrest caused quite a commotion amongst the teaching staff and the 700 pupils at the said school, which is in the Ensanche area of the town.
