The man, 52, committed crimes in the Netherlands as well as in Denmark and Spain.

A Dutch court had sentenced him to four-and-a-half years in prison.

A European arrest warrant was issued against him over large-scale drug trafficking in mainly cocaine and money laundering.

Policia Nacional officers executed the arrest warrant and at the time of his detention, he had no identification papers on him.
