The head commissioner of the National Police in Fuengirola is detained by Internal Affairs.
A court in the town of Malaga attributes the disclosure of secrets, coercion and omission to prosecute the crime in a separate piece of a case that investigates the businessman Salomon Kadosh, also arrested
The Internal Affairs Unit of the National Police has arrested this Monday the chief commissioner of the Malaga town of Fuengirola, José María Tocornal, for the alleged crimes of discovery and disclosure of secrets, failure to prosecute the crime and coercion, among others, have informed elDiario.es sources close to the investigation.
The investigation is directed by the Investigating Court number 3 of Fuengirola, whose head has decreed the secrecy of the proceedings. The aforementioned sources specify that the 63-year-old commissioner has been arrested early in the morning at his private home. In the same operation, a 58-year-old businessman, Salomon Kadosh Chuqueron, has been arrested.
The Efe agency cites police sources to ensure that, after his transfer to police stations, the commissioner will be dismissed and his employment and salary will be suspended, while a disciplinary file will be opened. Commissioner Tocornal is being investigated in a separate piece of a broader proceeding.
Tocornal, a native of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, joined the Superior Police Corps as an Inspector in 1983. He was stationed in Bilbao until 1992 and later in Huelva. In 2008 he was appointed head of the Provincial Citizen Security Brigade of the Huelva capital and in 2011 head of the Lucena-Cabra police station. He was promoted to commissioner in 2017 and his first destination with that category was Fuengirola.
For his part, the businessman Salomon Kadosh Chuqueron appears at the head of the company Orgánico Agricultura Andalucía SL, established in 2020, with headquarters in Fuengirola and dedicated to the cultivation of spices, aromatic, medicinal and pharmaceutical plants, as well as the production and marketing of insects for the control and prevention of pests in crops and the import and export of seeds and all kinds of plants.
