UK hunts most wanted Criminals in Spain

UK hunts most wanted Criminals in Spain

It's the latest push by crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers and the National Crime Agency to track down the 18 remaining individuals wanted as part of Operation Captura.

The fugitives are wanted by UK law enforcement agencies in connection with crimes including murder, rape, indecent assault of a child and drug trafficking.

One is Mohammed Jahangir Alam, 32, who is wanted by Gloucestershire Police for rape and sexual assault by penetration.

Alam, who is from Bangladesh, arrived in the UK on a temporary visa in October 2007 and lived in Bradford before moving to Cheltenham in 2008. It was during this time he physically and sexually abused one victim.

Alam was convicted in March 2010 and sentenced to 14 years in his absence. He is 5ft, 8 ins tall. His last known address was in the E3 area of London and is thought to be on-the-run in Spain.

The fugitives are believed to be hiding among British communities in popular ex-pat areas including Benidorm, Malaga and Puerto Banus.

The 13ft digital screen, attached to the back of a van, is touring all these areas and parking outside nightclubs, bars, British supermarkets and restaurants.

It is hoped that going direct to the fugitives' back yards and putting their faces in plain sight will help flush them out'.

"Their lives will become even more uncomfortable"

Steve Reynolds, NCA Deputy Director, said: "We've caught 68 out of 86 fugitives on the Captura list and the rest know we won't stop until we catch them too.

"By taking our campaign directly into Spanish communities where we believe they are living and socialising, their lives will become even more uncomfortable. We want British expats and locals to help us by being extra eyes and ears and telling us what they know.

"These fugitives are wanted for serious crimes. Anyone who is helping them stay on the run, such as girlfriends, wives, family members back home, or criminal associates, should know that assisting them is an offence too.

"There may also be people in the UK with vital information on the whereabouts of these fugitives and we would urge them to get in touch."
