NATIONAL POLICE officers have arrested a 40-year-old Estonian man at Almeria Airport subject to a European Arrest Warrant in connection with public order and security offences in his home country.

Officers detained the man, who is suspected of committing the offences in April, last Saturday August 18 while attempting to board a flight to the Irish capital of Dublin. He was found while border staff checked passengers’ travel documents, police said.

Proceedings for the 40-year-old’s case have been sent to the National Court’s Court of Instruction Number Two which is set to rule on his extradition back to Estonia. The case continues.
