Dutch Mafia Boss Arrested in Spain

In a significant development, Spain’s National Police have apprehended a notorious Dutch mafia boss in Marbella, on the Costa del Sol. The individual, who was the most sought-after fugitive from the Netherlands, is believed to have played a key role in laundering at least €6 million for drug cartels. The arrest was reported by the online news site, Area Costa del Sol, which also described the detainee as the most dangerous fugitive from the Netherlands.

Leader of the ‘Mocro Maffia’

The arrested individual is suspected to be a leading figure in the ‘Mocro Maffia’, a criminal organization composed of Dutch nationals of Moroccan origin. The National Police’s investigation has uncovered money-laundering operations exceeding €6 billion, as well as connections with Latin American drug cartels and other European criminal networks.

Multiple Arrests and Seizures

The operation led to the arrest of six individuals in total. Authorities also seized €75,000 in cash, jewellery worth €10,000, and two firearms. The operation has been hailed as a significant blow to organized crime in the region.

Property and Bank Deposits Seized

In addition to the arrests, the operation resulted in the seizure of 172 properties valued at €50 million. Furthermore, bank deposits amounting to €3 million have been frozen. This marks a significant financial setback for the criminal organization.

Related Criminal Activities

This arrest comes in the wake of several other criminal activities in Spain. Recently, a family-run pizzeria was exposed as a front for a mafia’s drug trafficking ring on Spain’s Costa Blanca. In another case, a trial involving the Russian mafia on Spain’s Costa Blanca is set to see five individuals face charges of money laundering, including a powerful ‘lobbyist’. These incidents highlight the ongoing battle against organized crime in Spain.
