A judge in Elche’s Administrative Court No.1 Elche condemned Alejandro Morer, Torrevieja’s Chief of Police, for bullying three of his officers on Monday, ordering the city to pay 45,000 plus interest as compensation for their suffering.
The applicants had claimed 60,000 euros in a lawsuit that was filed in 2006 and has taken 7 years to be concluded.
The policemen were said to have been picked on and regularly harassed by Morer, their productivity bonuses withheld, their holidays unreasonably refused, while they were assigned to menial tasks.
The judge said that he was making the awards because the three officers, all members of the Comisiones Obreras, the Police Union, had suffered professional moral damage and their rights had been continually ignored.
