Suspected gangland boss, ‘Fat Freddie’ Thompson bailed in Spain

SUSPECTED crime boss ‘Fat Freddie’ Thompson was released on bail following a court appearance in Estepona. Thompson was arrested in Dublin on a European arrest warrant on October 14 and consented to extradition.

The 30-year-old Dubliner spent 13-days in Cloverhill Prison in Ireland before being flown to Spain last Friday and spending the weekend in prisons in Madrid and Alhaurin de la Torre.

While he has not been officially charged with any crimes he “has been informed he is under investigation for crimes including money laundering, unlawful assembly and drugs trafficking,” a court source told Irish daily the Independent.

“The three conditions of his bail are that he cannot leave Spain, hands in his passport to the authorities and signs on at court twice a month on days fixed by the court.”

If convicted he faces nine-years in prison in Spain
