Belgium will ask Spain to surrender to a suspect who participated in a series of domestic invasions in the Mons region, a federal prosecutor said on Friday.
He was arrested Wednesday night in Torrevieja, Alicante, Spain, and appeared on Thursday in front of Spanish law enforcement officials, who, according to Sudinfo, confirmed by the federal prosecutor's office, decided to detain. The suspect, aged 33 and Jemappes, was already arrested for armed robbery, including the attack on the Miraux jewelry in Dour a few years ago. He managed to escape when the police in January last January attempted to stop home at home when he came into the domestic invasion of the Hakim gang.
The federal prosecutor's office said that this arrest does not have a direct link with journalist Stéphane Pauwels, who worries about the domestic invasion at the home of a former girlfriend at the time.
The investigation found the suspect in southern Spain. Investigation Guardia Civil confirmed that he opened a snack bar in Torrevieja. An international accompanying request for arrest was sent to Spain. This week, a Belgian delegation and a member of Europol visited the website. Several searches were performed on Wednesday afternoon without result. The man could be seen in the early evening in the house. He attacked on foot, but was quickly captured and controlled by the police.
The seizures took place within the money laundering component, Sudinfo said. Among other things, it is an open snack bar, two apartments and a car.
At least 26 domestic invasions were counted and 16 people were arrested. Several people were released under conditions. Boxer Farid Hakimi, suspected of being a gang leader, is still held.
