In the case of the alleged arson by Ballermann vacationers on Mallorca, there is movement. The eight “kegel brothers” who remained in custody are now apparently being released.
Palma de Mallorca – In May, the Ballermann bar “Why not Mallorca” caught fire. Suspicion quickly fell on 13 German vacationers. The allegation is that they negligently or willfully flicked a glowing cigarette butt from the hotel balcony onto the roof of the bar. Eight of the 13 Ballermann travelers were still in custody in Spain. Now they too are apparently being released, like them Mallorca Newspaper (MZ) reported on Thursday. It may have played a role that the responsible investigating judge was on vacation.

The fire broke out around 3pm on May 20th on the thatched roof of the Why not Mallorca bar. The authorities have charged the fire with arson. Accordingly, the 13 cone brothers are said to have thrown a glowing cigarette butt from the hotel balcony onto the thatched roof. As a result, the roof caught fire, an apartment, two restaurants and parts of a restaurant were affected.
Of the 13 members of a Münster bowling club, eight were last in Spanish custody. All protest their innocence. One of the “kegel brothers” was released the day after the fire without conditions. He had been able to prove that he was in the shower when the fire broke out. Four suspects were allowed to leave the prison in Palma after around two and a half weeks after paying bail of 12,000 euros each. Several applications for release had been made for the remaining eight, but these had all been rejected by the responsible investigating judge – so far.
Fire in the Mallorca bar: Eight Ballermann vacationers remaining in custody are apparently released
On Thursday (July 14) it became known that the eight cone brothers who are still in custody are now apparently being released on bail of 12,000 euros. The deposit has already been transferred, and now the money is still waiting to be credited to the court account. The public prosecutor had already approved the release. The report of MZ according to the lawyers of the bowling club members are said to have done a particularly good job at the time of their application.
Because the previously unyielding investigating judge is apparently on vacation this week. Therefore, the lawyers were able to apply to another judge for release, he said MZ-Report. The lawyers for the victims had recently agreed to a release on bail. Meanwhile, another topic at Ballermann is causing an uproar: the hit song “Layla” was banned at folk festivals in Würzburg and Düsseldorf, which sparked a nationwide debate. Now the stars of Ballermann also commented on “Causa Layla”.
