The Murcian businessman Thomas Oliveowner of the La Cañada shopping center in Marbella, faces a provisional tax request of three years in prison for an alleged crime of sexual abuse of a 13-year-old girl on a flight from Madrid to Malaga.

Tomás Olivo will be tried in the First Section of the Provincial Court of Malaga next April 19 at 10:00 a.m. for an alleged crime of sexual abuse of a minor, as confirmed to EFE by judicial sources.

In the provisional document from the Public Prosecutor’s Office, to which EFE has had access, it is indicated that on September 5, 2019, the defendant was traveling as a passenger on a flight from Madrid to Malaga and after changing seats presumably sat in the same row and with the minor, who was traveling alone.

Always according to the prosecutor’s provisional accusatory version, the girl fell asleep and presumably he put his hand under her pants and this caused the minor to wake up. Supposedly the girl reproached her for her behavior and asked a steward to change her seat and she sat in a different seat until the end of the flight.

The prosecutor considers that the facts constitute a crime of sexual abuse and that there have been no modifying circumstances of criminal responsibility.

In addition to the penalty prisonthe public prosecution asks distance measure consisting in that the defendant may not approach the minor or her home or study center at a distance of less than 500 meters, nor communicate with her by any means, especially by telephone, for a period of five years.

By way of civil liability, the Public Prosecutor’s Office in its provisional brief requests that, in addition, he be sentenced to compensate the minor with 2,000 euros for the moral damages caused.

The sources consulted have stressed to EFE that the prosecutor’s conclusions are provisional and that, therefore, it will be necessary to listen to the minor, the accused and witnesses, as well as practice all the evidence in case the facts were modified during the oral hearing.
