Ibiza. An island known for only providing the best times in nightlife, has made headlines recently for a different reason. News broke out earlier this month that the owner of the famed club, Amnesia, was arrested. According to a local publication, the Spanish Civil Guard raided the club and arrested four employees, including owner Martin Ferrer.

Among Space, Pacha, Ushuaia and Privilege, Amnesia has secured a name with its weekly “Music On” event with Marco Carola and the fourth season of the “Foam & Diamonds” party with Paris Hilton.

According to reports, the raid is part of an ongoing investigation involving five years of corporate tax evasion and accusations of money laundering.

A few days after the initial arrest, over €2 million Euros were confiscated from the club after agents found the money hidden in the building. A money counting machine was found as well.

While the investigation continues, the club will remain open.
