PJ police detained seven people - five men and two women – yesterday (Tuesday) and formally identified 12 other people in an operation that cracked down on scams involving properties in the Eastern Algarve.

The group reportedly “fraudulency appropriated rustic and urban properties from their rightful owners by illegitimately invoking the legal statute of acquisitive prescription”.

Two dozen home searches were carried out, as well as a search at a notary office in the Algarve region, with 12 properties being seized.
