A FUGITIVE has been arrested in Orihuela.
National Police have seized a Slovak entrepreneur who was wanted on a European arrest warrant issued by his home country for fraud.
The authorities in Slovakia issued a warrant for the 64-year-old to be extradited to serve a sentence of eight years in prison for economic and financial crimes, and defrauding around €15,000.
Researchers from the Specialist Crime and Violence Unit (UDEV) of Alicante activated a search and location for the fugitive as it was suspected that he might be in hiding in the province.
He was located at a property in Orihuela and has been taken to the High Court where the process will begin for his extradition.
