One of the top three most-wanted criminals, a Polish national, was arrested in the Malaga city of Marbella by National Police officers.

As reported by the National Police in a statement on Tuesday, March 7, a Polish fugitive was arrested in the Malaga city of Marbella. He was being chased by the Polish judicial authorities and was among the three most-wanted criminals in Europe.

According to the Polish authorities, he organised and led a multi-person criminal group to commit tax and criminal offences. They allegedly deceived the tax authorities and laundered large sums of money.

An investigation began in 2022 when the Polish authorities contacted the National Police, taking into account the nature of the crimes committed by the wanted man. His case was carried out within the Enfast framework of the European network of fugitives.
