The funerary group 'El Salvador' is being investigated for alleged fraud for 20 years. The scam consisted of removing the deceased from the coffins in which they were and changing them to others of lower economic cost. Also with the wreaths of flowers. The operation has been called Ignis.
It is believed that there is criminal organization. The delegate of the Government of Castilla y León, Virginia Barcones, said that it is particularly relevant to "touch the sensitive fiber" of those affected by such a sensitive issue.
At eight o'clock in the morning 76 agents have been present at the homes of the individuals involved and at the funeral home to proceed, so far, to carry out fourteen arrests.
They have found eight computers, a server and between six and eight cubic meters of documentation that have already been requisitioned, as stated by the Superior Chief of the National Police of Castilla y León, Jorge Zurita.
The investigation period consists of 1995 to 2015. It is, at least, the one that is documented. Also, it does not rule out that more arrests occur. 'El Salvador' employs 70 people. In one of the registered homes has been found about one million euros in cash.
The complaint was made in 2017 when a former worker alarmed the facts after he had a "work problem" with the aforementioned company. From the imputed company it is alleged that this person asked for amounts of money in exchange for not disclosing "irregular practices that he, allegedly, would have committed". The case is in the hands of the Court of Instruction six of Valladolid. According to Barcones, the Court has been forced to lift part of the Summary Secret to end the speculation.
From the web you can buy crowns from 40 euros to 200 euros the most expensive. With the coffins the price ranges between 600 and 2,600 euros.
Finally, it should be remembered that the company 'El Salvador' was founded in 1985. In addition to operating in Valladolid, it also operates in Tordesillas, Median de Rioseco, Peñafiel, Mojados, Tudela de Duero and Montemayor de Pililla.
