Gibraltar policeA CONVICTED murderer blacklisted by Gibraltar has returned to the Rock.

Spaniard Luis Ramirez has been sent back to prison after police caught him graffiting on a garage door.

Ramirez, 42, was released from Spanish prison earlier this year after spending 11 years behind bars for the murder of 71-year-old Moti Khemlani on Main Street in 1997.

Although he was sentenced on the Rock in 2004, he served his jail time in Spain and was given a lifetime ban from entering Gibraltar.

A police spokesman said it was ‘unclear’ how Ramirez entered Gibraltar and confirmed that he had been charged for being a ‘prohibited immigrant’.

He will now spend two weeks in Gibraltar’s prison before being extradited out of the British territory and back to Spain.
