The two men, aged 39 and 43, were arrested in Spain and France after an investigation lasting several months, the police said in a statement. They were charged with kidnapping, torture and possession of weapons of war.

According to the press release, these two French nationals allegedly held a Moroccan national hostage for eleven days in April 2023 on a farm in Torrox, a village on the Costa del Sol located in the province of Malaga, to demand payment by his family of a ransom of 1.4 million euros.

“During his captivity, they cut off part of his ear,” “inflicted numerous blows” and “even deprived him of food,” limiting themselves to giving him water “on rare occasions,” before releasing him to an isolated location in the region, the police explained.

Alerted by his family, who had received a video of the victim gagged, her feet and hands tied with cables and her face covered in bruises, the authorities tracked down the alleged perpetrator of the kidnapping, who was arrested in a seaside resort on the Costa del Sol.

At his home, police discovered an AK47 assault rifle, three pistols and a large amount of ammunition.

The second suspect, presented as the instigator of this kidnapping, was arrested on April 30 in Paris, the police stated in its press release. He was the subject of an arrest warrant and an extradition request from the Spanish justice system.

The Costa del Sol, renowned for its superb beaches and luxurious resorts, is popular with international drug traffickers and has been regularly hit by drug settling in recent years, which worries the authorities.
