A MYSTERIOUS Brit is still causing havoc at Malaga airport despite a judge making an order to stop him going within 200m of the premises.
Homeless Carl Richard, 43, has already broken the order three times within a month of it being made and is reportedly now living under a nearby bridge.
Mr Richard, who is described as tall, slim and bearded, first entered the airport from the street in November 2010 and lived there for two years.
He quickly acquired the nicknames, ‘El F***ing’, due to his use of foul language, and ‘El Ninja’, because he dresses in black and practices martial arts in the building.
He was first arrested in November 2010 for throwing a stone at a vehicle belonging to the firm Rent-A-Car, and later in July 2011 for pouring cleaning liquid containing ammonia over a cleaner.
Mr Richard also threatened travellers with a mop stick and intimidated employees.
The order comes after Mr Richards abused a rental company worker and started smashing windows.
The magistrate dated the order from January 4 which Mr Richard broke after only ten days when he was spotted wandering around Terminal 3.
Despite being arrested several times, Mr Richard’s past is still a mystery and nobody knows exactly why he roams the area, or why he has not returned to Britain.
According to reports his family has turned up at the airport a number of times to pursuade him to return home but he refused.
The social services have also failed in their attempt to have him declared incapacitated in order to get him institutionalised.
He is one of a number of homeless people who live at Malaga airport.
There are said to be up to a dozen men living there, a number of them expatriates, who have fallen on hard times.
