Anti-narcotics police arrested a 39-year-old Australian, who features on Interpol’s most-wanted list, on Wednesday at Mykonos airport.

The individual appears on Interpol’s “red notice,” which is a request to law enforcement worldwide to locate and provisionally arrest a person pending extradition, surrender or similar legal action.

The arrest was made by officers from the Attica Security Police Drug Prosecution Subdirectorate, with the assistance of local police.

The arrested man is expected to appear before a prosecutor.
