Spain to deport Dominican, Latin American gang leaders

Madrid.– Spain will deport 34 key members of violent Latin American gangs operating in Madrid, who will also be banned from entering Spain for between five and 10 years.

As reported in theolivepress.es, the 34 leaders belong to five different gangs in the Spanish capital: 12 are members of Los Netas, eight belong to Trinitarios, seven are from Dominican Don’t Play (DDP), five are from the Latin Kings and the other two from Las Maras.

The first two deportations will take place immediately, as part of the regional government’s new strategy for breaking up criminal networks before they take hold, the outlet reported.

The leaders’ nationalities have not been disclosed yet, but the Interior Ministry revealed the gangs are mostly made up of youths from the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Colombia and Peru.
