Mexico Extradites Drug Trafficker to Spain

MEXICO CITY – Mexico extradited a drug trafficker to Spain who was wanted by Spanish authorities after being sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison, the Mexican Attorney General’s Office said on Friday.

The culprit was handed over to Spanish officials by the Mexican Federal Police at Mexico City’s International Airport.

According to the AG Office, the accused drug trafficker, identified by local media as Jaroslav Slosiar, was handed over “to carry out a prison sentence.”

The AG Office also said that the detained man was wanted by Spanish authorities to be charged with possession of illegal weapons.

The institution said that after a judge agreed to the extradition, the Foreign Relations Secretariat signed the agreement allowing Mexican authorities to hand over the man to Spain.

The extradition was allowed to proceed after every appeal was rejected.

During the nearly six years of President Enrique Peña Nieto’s administration, Mexico has extradited 392 people, 41 during 2018 alone.
