Admission of Guilt by ‘Los Suecos’ Gang in Double Murder Case

In a surprising turn of events, the gang known as ‘Los Suecos’ (The Swedes) confessed in court on Friday to their involvement in the murders of two individuals in Costa del Sol in 2018.

Details of the Notorious Killings

One of the victims was David Avila, also known by his nickname ‘Maradona’. He was fatally shot as he was leaving his son’s first communion. The second incident occurred three months later in August, when Soufian Mohamed was shot dead outside his residence in Estepona.

Prime Suspect’s Admission in Court

Ahmed Abdul Karim, the prime suspect in the case, made the admission in response to the prosecutor’s questions at the Malaga Provincial court. The other defendants in the case also confessed to their involvement in the murders, a fact they had previously denied, as reported by Spanish daily El Pais.

Possible Sentences for the Accused

The four gang members accused of executing the murders could face Spain’s equivalent of life imprisonment. The four accomplices, on the other hand, could face up to 12 years in prison.

Fast-Tracked Court Case and Expected Verdict

The court case is being expedited and is expected to conclude next week. A jury will then be tasked with delivering a verdict. The confessions to the crimes could potentially lead to reduced sentences.

Details of the Brutal Murders

David Avila was brutally murdered after leaving church on May 12, 2018, in what police initially believed to be a drug-related hit. Avila, a businessman who owned Heaven Beach Club and a gym, was shot three times in the head, once in the chest, and once in the shoulder.

Second Victim’s Tragic End

Sofian Mohamed was killed three months later as he emerged from his house at 3.32am on August 20. He was shot nine times at close range, resulting in his immediate death.
