Spain arrests 26 Mafia suspects

Spain's National Police force made the arrest of arrested 26 members of the Italian Camorra Mafia family, who stand accused of laundering mob money through front-companies based in Spain.

Officers arrested the suspects in raids in Madrid and confiscated cash, firearms and drug-related material, the statement issued by the anti-corruption prosecutors office read.

"Those detained belonged to various clans in the Camorra and operated in Spain in connection with criminal organisations in Italy," it said.

"They created a business network in Spain in order to introduce earnings from their criminal activity into Spanish financial channels."

Those arrested are due to appear before a judge for questioning, accused of drug-trafficking, membership of a criminal gang, money-laundering, forgery and tax fraud, the statement said.
