01e015c9bcdc509ea359b74573b443a7_LJUST before Valentine’s Day, a 45-year-old Norwegian had something of a shock when a taxi in which he was travelling arrived at his home in Marbella, City in Spain to be greeted by officers of the Spain National Police who handed him a warrant issued by the Oslo district court and arrested him on behalf of the Norwegian authorities.

It is alleged that the man who was carrying false documents when arrested started defrauding Norwegian banks in 2013 by obtaining loans under false pretences and by the time he fled Norway for a new life in Spain he had apparently obtained the equivalent of just under €4 million supposedly for the building of houses based on presentation of false accounts.
