Europol arrests killer of Dominican lawyer
The European Police announced the arrest in Germany of Ambiorix Nepomuceno Rodríguez, who is accused in the murder of 37-year old Dominican lawyer Paola Languasco on 24 April 2015 in Santiago.
Rodriguez has a pending warrant for extradition to the Dominican Republic, where is scheduled to be tried for the murder. The extradition reportedly will be carried out after Rodriguez completes his sentence in Spain. He was in Germany where he was a fugitive of justice after failing to return to jail in Spain for drug trafficking after being allowed out of prison to visit a relative.
In the Dominican Republic, Paola Lenguasco went missing for 19 days after leaving her residence in Puerto Plata to meet with Rodriguez in Santiago. Rodriguez was arrested in the country, but the Police and the Public Ministry authorized his release and he eventually departed the Dominican Republic.
