Crime gang ‘middle man’ deported from Dubai


DUBAI – A man suspected of being a “middle man” of a crime gang accused of murders in the Netherlands has been deported from Dubai.

The 35-year-old suspect, identified as Khalid J., was arrested at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport on Sunday after he was deported from the UAE.

According to Het Parool newspaper, Khalid J was the alleged middleman of the gang from 2013 to 2014. Dutch authorities have also described him as the right hand man of an alleged drug trafficker.

The Public Prosecution in Amsterdam confirmed Khalid J’s arrest, which came just weeks after suspected Dutch crime boss Ridouan Taghi was deported from Dubai.

Taghi, the suspected leader of the Angels of Death gang, was arrested following an international manhunt. He was found hiding in a luxury resort villa in Dubai.

He will be standing trial in March for assassinations and attempted murders. ICA/Expat Media
