A Briton arrested in Barcelona over an alleged dispute between two crime gangs in Salford has been charged with conspiracy to murder.
AFTER a European Arrest Warrant was issued in October, Jamie Rothwell was detained by Spanish police.
The 33-year-old has since been extradited and appeared before Manchester Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday where he was charged with conspiring with others between July 2014 and October 2015 to murder two men. Rothwell was remanded in custody to appear next at Manchester Crown Court on July 15.
Greater Manchester Police said his arrest was part of an ongoing investigation into rival organised crime groups in the city.
He is charged with conspiring with others between July 2014 and October 2015 to murder two men.
Rothwell is also accused of two counts of conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm with intent.
In 2015 a man was shot in Salford as he sat in a car with two others. In a separate incident, a second man was seriously injured in a machete attack.
