Criminal spotted in south of Spain this week for meeting with associates
who sparked Ireland’s murderous gangland feud has been spotted in Spain in recent days, we can reveal.
The Irish gangster, who runs Kinahan’s drug empire from the UK Midlands, was seen on the Costa Del Sol during the week.
He has split his time between Dublin, the UK and Spain since the shocking Regency Hotel shooting three weeks ago.
It was this gangster who ordered the hits on Gary Hutch and Gerard Hatchet Kavanagh over a two year period - sparking the latest bloody feud.
Sources in Spain have told us this man was spotted close to the Kinahan stronghold in Estepona in the south of the country.
Our sources in the region have told irishmirror.ie that a meeting of some of the cartel’s leading members is believed to have taken place.
Meanwhile, Daniel Kinahan, Christy Snr’s son, is in London sorting out a bubbling feud with a UK based crime gang.
But it appears there are a number of crime summits happening across Europe.
Our source said: “It looks as if though they’re trying to put out fires with other international gangs.
“There’s no need for them to be fighting wars all over Europe.
“This is a chance for the Kinahan’s not to lose their control on the continent.
“This man was spotted in the south of Spain with a number of his heavies. He’s been in Spain and Dublin in recent weeks as well but he runs the Kinahan UK drugsempire from the Midlands in Britain.”
