41-year-old Ridouan Taghi – described as ‘the Netherlands’ most dangerous man’ – was arrested in Dubai in cooperation with Dutch authorities. He is the ring leader of the notorious ‘Angels of Death’ gang, which is one of the most serious criminal organisations in the Netherlands.
“He is one of the world’s most dangerous and wanted men listed on Interpol for his connections to serious organised crime,” said Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Merri, Commander-In-Chief of Dubai Police.
Dubai Police said Taghi committed several crimes in Europe and Africa but avoided arrest by using different identities. Tagi was referred to the judicial authority in the UAE to begin criminal proceedings against him.
