Spanish police have arrested more than 50 people, most of them Britons, suspected of involvement in a network that falsified identity documents

Posted On 22:26 0 comments

Spanish police have arrested more than 50 people, most of them Britons, suspected of involvement in a network that falsified identity documents for clients around the world.They have also identified around 100 British citizens living in Spain whom they suspect of using the fake documents to obtain bank credit, mostly mortgages of between 200,000 and 1.5 million euros.The gang's operations may have defrauded some 25 financial institutions in Spain of around 60 million euros (80 million dollars), police said in a statement.Spanish authorities have also provided information to the international police agency Europol on more than 1,000 people in 26 countries in the five continents suspected of obtaining fake documents from the gang.Police in the eastern Mediterranean resort city of Alicante opened an investigation in early 2007 after spotting websites that offered fake driving licences, residence permits, birth certificates, academic qualifications and other official documents, the statement said.
In May 2007 they arrested two men and a woman, all Britons, in the Alicante region and seized equipment for producing fake documents, guns and ammunition in raids on two properties.Since mid-2008, 50 people, most of them British, have been arrested in various regions of Spain, and the operation is continuing."It was a perfectly structured organisation, capable of successfully producing all types of fake documents, including a vast range of clients and able to set up a full network of collaborators, which meant a high volume of fake documents were generated - more than 1,000 documents in three months," the statement said.The websites were administered in the United States but had virtual offices in the British colony of Gibraltar, off Spain's southern tip.Two of the Britons arrested, identified only by their initials AK and DM, were located last November through appeals from the British charity Crimestoppers and Britain's Serious and Organised Crime Agency.The investigation also led to the identification of a British man who was wanted for a murder in the southern city of Malaga, and who police believe may have fled to Britain using fake documents supplied by the gang.investigation has also led to the identification of another British resident, wanted in connection with a homicide carried out some years ago in Málaga. Spanish police say this man has now returned to the U.K. using a fake identity created by the group now detained.The Guardia Civil has described the group as perfectly organised, with the ability of obtaining all types of fake documents, and with a wide network of clients and collaborators.
They are thought to have generated more than 1,000 false documents over a three month period.

He told her he would kill himself with the same knife.Only after the victim revealed she had EUR 1,000 in her closet and asked Boris to take the money and use them to find help, the perpetrator left the house with the stash. Instead of seeking help, he went to airport, trying to flee the island. In the mean time Sibyl managed to find help herself.

Guardia Civil, named as Santiago A.N., who shot dead an immigrant who had arrived on a patera small boat in Tarifa in December 2000, been sentenced

Posted On 12:04 0 comments

Guardia Civil, named as Santiago A.N., who shot dead an immigrant who had arrived on a patera small boat in Tarifa in December 2000, has been sentenced to six months in jail for involuntary manslaughter.In a long sentence the court in Algeciras leaves several questions open in the case. The official version from the Government Sub-delegate in Cádiz was that the gun went off accidentally during a struggle, but the evidence accepted in the sentence considers there was no struggle and the shot was not accidental. Another immigrant witness said the Civil Guard approached the victim with his finger on the trigger of his gun, and with the safety catch off.
The court ruled the action of the Civil Guard was disproportionate to what he should have done to protect the immigrant, and that it not justified either because there was no evidence either that his own life was in any danger.The Guardia has also been ordered to pay 300,000 € in compensation to the victim’s family, and has also been ordered to pay the costs of the case.

Posted On 09:29 0 comments

Spanish police said they arrested a 66-year-old Chilean at Barcelona airport after discovering the cast on his broken leg was made of cocaine.The man also had cocaine hidden in six beer cans that had been emptied, packed with drugs and resealed, and inside the legs of two small folding stools. Altogether, he was carrying about 11 pounds of the drug.The arrest was made on Wednesday as the man arrived from Santiago, Chile.The man’s leg was broken and investigators are looking into the possibility that he deliberately broke it in order to smuggle in the drug.Police spokesman Jose Antonio Nin said he knew of cases in which smugglers had concealed cocaine underneath casts but this was the first time officials had seen a cast made entirely of compressed cocaine. It weighed about 2.2 pounds.Police detected the drug by spraying the cast with a chemical that turns bright blue when it comes in contact with cocaine.The man was taken to hospital after the cast was removed.
Spain is a major European gateway for cocaine from Latin America and airport officials pay especially close attention to passengers on flights from Peru, Colombia and Chile.A UN report in 2008 revealed it had become the biggest consumer of cocaine in continental Europe, and is one of the world’s top users of the drug.
