WARRANT: Police arrest man for crime committed 14 years ago
POLICE in Alicante have arrested a Dutchman in connection with a murder committed in 2004.
The 54 year-old is also accused of belonging to a criminal organisation ‘dedicated to committing assassinations for settling accounts’.
A European arrest warrant was issued by Dutch authorities hunting for the suspected fugitive, who allegedly shot his victim several times in Amsterdam on May 17.
International police co-operation led the Guardia Civil to a property in La Nucia, where he was detained on Monday.
The accused faces extradition and a possible life sentence if found guilty in his own country.
