Las Palmas Civil Guard have arrested three players from Real Madrid C and one other player from Real Madrid Castilla for an alleged case of revealing secrets of a sexual nature related to a minor.
The alleged event is said to have occurred on September 6 in Mogán (Gran Canaria) and was reported to the authorities by the mother of the minor, who is 16 years old. The victim’s mother is said to have claimed that one of the detainees recorded a sexual video of the minor and later spread it. No first team player is involved.
Real Madrid release a statement on the alleged event
“Real Madrid wishes to announce that it has learned that a Castilla player and three Real Madrid C players have made statements to the Civil Guard in relation to a complaint about the alleged broadcasting of a private video via WhatsApp. When the club has detailed knowledge of the facts, we will take the appropriate measures” the club announced in a statement.
The three footballers who belong to Real Madrid C were handed over to the police to continue the investigation. One of the detainees is reported to be the person who videotaped the sexual relations with the minor, which were consensual.

Sources from the Superior Court of Justice of the Canary Islands have specified, according to the EFE Agency, that at the moment no judicial proceedings have been opened for these events.
