Colombian authorities arrested and expelled a Swedish citizen wanted in his home country to face drug trafficking charges.
According to newspaper El Tiempo, Swedish citizen Jonas Sture Oredsson is considered the leader of an organization held responsible for the trafficking of cocaine from South America to Europe.
The Swede was located and arrested in the town of Girardot, 40 miles southwest of the capital Bogota and was being transferred to the immigration office of state intelligence agency DAS, after which he was put on a plane to Sweden.
El Tiempo reported that Oredsson was considered highly dangerous with an impressive criminal record that included five convictions of aggravated assault, one armed break-out and the threatening of a prosecutor.
Sweden wants its citizen on trial for his alleged role in the shipment of 1,400 kilos of cocaine that was intercepted in June.
