This is the moment an Israeli fugitive who is wanted by the UK authorities for sexually abusing a young girl for three years is arrested by Spanish cops at Ibiza Airport.
According to the Spanish National Police, the suspect was arrested at Ibiza Airport while travelling to his native Israel after holidaying in the Balearic Islands.
The suspect, who was born in Israel in 1959 and identified by his initials A.A., is wanted by the UK authorities for allegedly sexually abusing his girlfriend’s daughter for three years in the UK.
According to reports, the girl was aged between 11 and 13 during the period of the alleged abuse.
A police statement said that A.A. bought the young victim expensive presents after every alleged incident of abuse to buy her silence.
The UK authorities issued an arrest warrant for the suspect when the schoolgirl told a teacher, according to local media.
A spokesperson for the National Police told Central European News (CEN) that is unclear how long he lived in the UK or how he managed to flee the country.
With the cooperation of the UK’s National Crime Agency, Spanish police arrested the man while he was attempting to fly to Israel from Ibiza.
It is unclear when the Spanish authorities are planning to extradite the Israeli suspect back to the UK.
