'Fat' Freddie Thompson consents to extradition to Spain

04:43 |



'Fat' Freddie Thompson has consented to his extradition to Spain to face charges that he is a member of a criminal gang involved in drugs and arms trafficking.

The 30-year-old from Loreto Road, Maryland, Dublin was arrested last Friday on a European Arrest Warrant issued from Malaga last year.

While appearing relaxed at times in court, Mr Thompson seemed impatient for today's proceedings to wrap up.

The 30-year-old has agreed to his immediate surrender to police in Spain, where he will face three charges of being part of an international criminal organisation that deal in weapons and drugs.

If convicted, he could face up to nine years in a Spanish prison.

The judge refused him legal aid after State lawyers objected on the grounds that while Thompson appears to travel freely and frequently from the jurisdiction, he is not registered for tax, nor is he in receipt of social welfare.

Thompson's counsel John Berry argued to no avail that his client has been supported by his mother and that €20,000 compensation received in road accident claims three years ago had been spent.
