Diners are shocked as a mafia chief is seized

POLICE in Spain made a dramatic arrest, among others, in front of stunned diners at a busy Costa del Sol restaurant in southern Spain, seizing a man they believed to be the Russian mafia’s No.3 worldwide.

National Police officers pinned the wanted man to the ground in front of those dining at the Marbella eaterie, as part of their investigations into murders, belonging to a criminal organisation and false documentation.

It follows on from an operation last June, when 129 people were arrested.

It is believed that those arrested were planning the imminent execution of a rival gang member, who was planning to settle in Spain, to demonstrate the strength of the group’s hold in Europe.
