Georgian mafia henchman extradited to Spain

A right-hand man of Georgian mafia boss is being extradited to Spain.

Leon Lann, aka Leonid Kaplan, managed Costa del Sol real estate investments for gang leader Zakhar Kalashov.

Kalashov was sentenced in Spain earlier this year and Lann was recently nabbed in Moscow.

Russian-born mafioso is charged with laundering money from arms trafficking through property investments.

Spanish prosecutors believe Lann invested over 5.5 million euros of Kalashov’s money through Costa del Sol firms Suninvest 2000 and Elvira Invest.
