GUARDIA CIVIL officers have arrested a 21-year-old Swedish man in Barcelona wanted in his home country in connection with several killings and the suspect in alleged murder plot probe.
Police also claim the suspect was part of a Swedish-based gang which trafficked drugs and laundered money.
The Guardia Civil was also tracing the 21-year-old in connection with an alleged murder plot which they claimed would happen in Malaga Province “imminently”.
Officers said the 21-year-old had been carrying false documents when he was detained. Spain’s National Court has now begun handling extradition proceedings with Swedish authorities.
