These are the 10 Spanish fugitives most wanted by Interpol

Interpol has red notifications to request from the authorities around the world the location and provisional detention of a person who is accused by a court of a member country or because their immediate admission to prison after being tried is required. There are a total of 66,370 active notifications, although 7,669 are publicly accessible. Of the latter, there are ten that belong to our country, among which Antonio Anglés stands out, the main suspect of being the murderer of the ‘Alcàsser case’.

The Interpol Red Alerts have different information that allows local authorities recognize the wanted person. These data are, among others, the name, date of birth, nationality and certain physical features, as well as photographs and fingerprints, if any.

In addition, it provides information related to the crimes for which they are searching and capturing. Among Spaniards, most of the people who are on the public list want to prosecute – or lock up – for having a relationship, in one way or another, with drug trafficking, although there is room in Interpol for criminals with all kinds of crimes, from terrorism to armed robbery.

Of course, for Interpol to issue a red notice, it is necessary comply with the Statute of the organization, as well as with its normative texts. This is not equivalent to a European or international arrest warrant, although its existence is important because it guarantees that the police authorities of the member countries have instantly all the information about a criminal.

This equates to virtually everyone, as Interpol has 194 member countries, which makes it the most important police organization in Europe.

Why are there public red notices?

Antonio Angles was already on this list, but his search has been reactivated to clarify what happened in 1992 and bring him to justice. His profile is selected among those that can be seen by any user on the network because from Interpol request citizen collaboration for your location.

Most of the people listed as Interpol red notices have their profile hidden from the public, in such a way that only the police services of member countries have access. In addition to the reason why the English data is displayed, Interpol may do so because a criminal represents some kind of threat to the safety of citizens. Therefore, the capture of these fugitives seems a priority, since the police of the member states have decided to go one step further to find them.

In addition to Antonio Angles, there are 10 other Spaniards Those who are wanted in specific areas around the world for their crimes.
