Police in Spain have arrested a fugitive organized crime boss who is among the 30 "most-wanted" criminals in Italy, reports said Sunday, the dpa reported.
Patrizio Bosti, accused of heading a clan of the Neapolitan crime syndicate the Camorra, was arrested Saturday evening in the north- eastern Spanish city of Girona, state radio RNE reported.
The 49-year-old had been sentenced in absentia to 23 years' imprisonment on charges connected with a double murder and membership of a criminal organisation. He was on the run since 2005, when he was released from custody following the expiration of the maximum amount of time he could be held on remand.
He is believed to have taken over the leadership of a Camorra clan in 2007 after the previous head was jailed.
