• The veteran teacher who mistreated the children of the Pozuelo celebrity nursery: "The police say that the images are very harsh"

The National Police have arrested three other workers at a Pecas nursery school in the Madrid town of Pozuelo de Alarcón for allegedly mistreating and injuring the children in their care, in addition to the first two arrested at the end of last November. After being brought to court, the three arrested women have been released with charges by the magistrate of the Court of Instruction 2 of Pozuelo de Alarcón with the precautionary measure of prohibition of approaching less than 500 meters from the workplace. With these arrests, five women and employees have already been arrested forthese alleged ill-treatment.

According to police sources, the arrests took place around eight o'clock in the morning on Wednesday, after being ordered by the head of the Court of First Instance and Instruction number 3 of Pozuelo de Alarcón, in charge of the investigations.

It has been the viewing of the images of the security cameras of the nursery, which have made it possible to identify and arrest these three women, since in them they are observed how they mistreat the minors.

Alejandro Toledo, lawyer for two of the three detainees, explained that the women are calm and that they have declared that "they have no connection with the facts that are the subject of this criminal process. Clients have told me that they have no connection whatsoever with what is being investigated."

The judicial investigation is still open and it is not ruled out that there may be more arrests, the sources said.

These three workers are in addition to the first two arrested, who were arrested at the end of November for two alleged crimes against moral integrity and injuries in which a caregiver at the nursery is being investigated as the alleged perpetrator and another for omission.

The investigation of the case began as a result of the complaint of another worker at the center, who decided to record the caregiver with her mobile phone on the suspicion that her behavior was unreasonable, legal sources explained.

The court is offering families who may be affected to appear in the case. Among the parents who take their children to this nursery are theAtlético de Madrid players Antoine Griezmann, Álvaro Morata and Mario Hermoso or the singer Huecco.

The caregiver arrested at first, who is being investigated as the material author of the ill-treatment, was also prohibited from coming within 500 meters of the workplace and from participating in recreational, sports, teaching and work activities in which minors are involved, until the case is concluded.

Next Friday, starting at 10:00 a.m., the first two detainees are expected to be declared under investigation.
