A jury on Friday convicted two Civil Guard officers of receiving bribes, after they were satisfied that both received two boxes of shrimp, valued at 300 euros, in exchange for not reporting to the customs authorities the arrival at the port of Carboneras (Almeria) an Algerian-flagged fishing boat loaded with illegally caught seafood.
