Police arrest German criminal

THE HEAD of an international criminal organization, a 49-year-old German national identified as Ervin Wilhelm P, was detained on March 13 in the town of Pezinok, near Bratislava.

Deputy Police President Jaroslav Spišiak said at a press conference that the man, wanted under a European arrest warrant, runs a Czech Republic-based organization that specializes in forging deeds, driver's licences and other documents for criminal gangs.

The detainee will remain in pre-trial custody and will most likely be extradited to Germany at the Slovak justice authorities' request, the TASR news agency wrote.

Acting on a tip from their German counterparts on February 23 police apprehended Wilhelm P near his car, which had a Czech licence plate.

In November 2004, Ervin Wilhem P was charged with 42 criminal offences in Germany.
