The Civil Guard has arrested two minors in Malaga for blackmail a high school classmate, who came to pay them up to 5,000 euros.

There is a third boy involved, at the moment only as a researched. The action is part of the so-called Nelli operation.
The investigations began after the complaint of the victim's mother. The woman discovered that she lacked a good part of the income obtained in her business and that she kept at home. When he consulted his son, he admitted to using the money to pay some high school classmates who were threatening and extorting him for more than six weeks. They asked for large amounts of money in exchange for not divulging intimate aspects of his private life. To avoid this, the victim had paid them up to 5,000 euros.
The minor also explained that he preferred not to leave home for fear of the aggressors, who often roamed the vicinity of his home and that of his relatives in order to monitor him. This created him "a state of anxiety that made it impossible for him to get out of the spiral of blackmail to which he was subjected", according to sources from the Civil Guard.
The agents confirmed the minor's story and completed the investigation with the arrest of the two schoolmates, also taking a statement from a third young person involved in the events. The minors were summoned to appear before the Juvenile Prosecutor's Office of Málaga, who requested the admission to a juvenile center of the two detainee aggressors.
