The Judicial Police, through the Criminal Investigation Information Unit, located and detained a British citizen in compliance with a European Arrest Warrant issued by the competent judicial authorities of the United Kingdom.

The 25-year-old detainee is indicted for committing the crimes of homicide, attempted murder and theft in 2017 and is considered a very dangerous and violent person.

Knowing that he was wanted in the United Kingdom, he fled that country, having wandered around other countries until he settled in Portugal.

The Judiciary Police, in close collaboration with the UK law enforcement authorities, located and detained the individual in the Lisbon area.

Present to the competent Court of Appeal, he waited for the further terms of the extradition process in custody until it was handed over to the requesting authority.
