A Danish man of Iranian origin has been arrested in Dubai (UAE) in connection with a spate of violent crime on the Costa del Sol in 2018.

The arrested man is considered the head of a criminal gang of mercenaries which was dismantled after a series of crimes.

These included the high profile gunning down of a man attending his son's communion in San Pedro and the killing of another man as he returned to his Estepona mansion. Both were attributed to a settling of scores.
