Ibizan clubs Space and Privilege were raided Friday morning by agents of the Spanish Tax Agency and National Police in a similar but unrelated case to the raid of Ibiza's Amnesia. The case against Amnesia was spawned by a complaint to prosecution, while the Space and Privilege raids are part of the ongoing Operation Chopin to investigate and control fiscally-dubious businesses in the area.

2 Million Euros Seized in Ongoing Amnesia Ibiza Investigation: Report

According to Spanish publication Diaro de Ibiza, Operation Chopin has inspected 110 companies from 11 autonomous regions to date, 87 of which have been clubs. All the companies surveyed represent more than 20 percent of the nightlife turnover in the country.

No arrests have yet been made, although suspects homes are being searched as well as their places of business. Amensia owner Martin Ferrer, his son, and two other employees were arrested in a raid earlier this week where officials found and seized more than €2 million hidden throughout the building.

Billboard Dance reached out to Space and Privilege's representatives for comment, but had not heard back by time of publication.
