In Dubai, security officials have arrested a Danish national Amir Faten Mekky in a sting operation. In a statement yesterday, Dubai’s State Security Authority said, Mekky is the leader of one of the most dangerous international crime rings involved in murder, drug trafficking and money laundering.
According to the statement, Mekky, who is wanted by INTERPOL, is associated with one of the world’s most notorious international criminals Radwan Al-Taghi, Head of the ‘Angels of Death’ gang, who was arrested in Dubai in December last year and handed over to Holland.
Mekky has eluded security forces across Europe and was at large for a long time. He was arrested following the efforts of a joint task force that included the Dubai Public Prosecution and the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.
He is currently being investigated and preparations are underway to hand him over to the relevant authorities.  UAE authorities said they are fully committed to fulfilling their responsibilities towards combating transnational crime
