On the Run Swiss Criminal Arrested in Debrecen
Hungarian authorities have arrested a Swiss national convicted for blackmail, robbery, theft and drug trafficking, in Debrecen, in eastern Hungary, police.hu said.

The 29-year-old man sentenced to over five and a half years in prison was detained in a raid in a luxury apartment block in the city on Feb. 20, the site said.

The man wanted on an international and European list was handed a 2-year prison term by the Zurich regional court in 2019 and an additional 44-month term in 2020, said the site, adding that he was facing extradition.
